As is typical with these projects, construction activities will create inconveniences, dust and noise. A project of this size can often take several months to complete. This project is expected to be completed by late October 2006.
At some point during the project, residents may be forced to park their vehicles on the street. This is due to replacing the existing concrete curb and gutters, sidewalks and driveway approaches where needed and repairing the existing pavement. The typical number of days for which residents may be required to park on the street is ten but this is highly dependent on weather and the contractor’s ability to work. In some cases, the number of days will be greater. Any resident requiring special access needs to their home during construction should contact the project inspector to make arrangements to provide temporary access.
During construction, it may be necessary for Waste Management to pick-up solid waste earlier than normal in your area. Therefore, residents are asked to have all solid waste items (trash, recycling and yard waste) out at the curb for pick-up by 6:00 a.m. the day of their scheduled collection.
“Door Hangers” will be left on your front door 24 hours in advance of any work that prohibits access to your driveway. We will also be requesting extra police surveillance during the project to help prevent problems with vehicle vandalism and parking.
Another feature of this project will include the installation of eight-inch water main on several streets. At some time during this water main work, it will be necessary to temporarily shut off water to the affected houses in order to reconnect the house to the new main. The water may be shut off for several hours. You will be notified, by the City, prior to the water being shut off.
If you have any questions please contact the Project Inspector, Tom Pekny at 847-931-5955.
