This work is scheduled to begin on Thursday, May 25th and is expected to be complete by Friday, May 26th, 2017.
A “Noise Variance” has been granted to the contractor to allow for work to begin at 5:00 AM on Friday morning, May 26th. This variance is necessary to allow time for the watermain tie-in work to be completed before the surrounding local businesses open to the public for the day.
Access to all properties will be maintained during this roadway closure.
Drivers are advised to use caution while traveling around and through all construction zones.
