What to Expect During Construction

A brief guide on what community can expect during ongoing construction projects conducted by Environmental Services.

A Safe Work Site—We want you to be safe around the work site. Please keep children, pets, bikes, cars, and trucks away from the tools, machines, supplies, and construction workers.

Noise, Vibration, and Dust—Construction creates noise, vibration, and dust and disrupts normal neighborhood activity.

Traffic Delays—The work will slow down traffic in your neighborhood. Please read the traffic signs and follow directions from the workers with flags.

Access to Your Home or Business—You will be able to go to your home or business, but you may not be able to park as close as you would like. We will try to make sure driveways and parking lot entrances stay open.

Parking Restrictions—We want you to be safe, so you might not be able to park your car next to work spaces, equipment, or materials. If crews are working directly in front of your home or a business, you may need to park in another place.

Equipment Storage—Sometimes we will leave tools, machines, and supplies on your street overnight. Please stay away from them.

Maintained Service—You can still use sewer, water, and other services while we work on your street.

Work Hours—Work hours are 7 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Friday. Sometimes we work on Saturdays from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Schedule Changes and Inactivity—Our work schedules can change for many reasons like weather, traffic, and problems with tools, machines, or supplies. Sometimes we need to stop between different types of work and start again later.
