Curbing

No parking will be allowed on the street during the day while construction is in progress. The street may also be closed to traffic at various times during the day. If you must use your vehicle(s) during the day; it should be removed from your driveway and parked on a side street by 7:00 a.m.

Milling

The roadway will be open to traffic once milling operations and all cleanup has been completed. Expect delays due to the contractor’s activity if driving through the work area. Once milling has been completed, please use caution while driving or walking in these areas as the manholes will be raised. Paving will be completed within 5 to 7 days.

Paving

The roadway will remain closed to traffic for 4 to 6 hours after paving while the asphalt cools. No vehicles will be permitted on the roadway until the barricades are removed.

Police officers will be directing traffic during the milling and paving operations.
