Anticipated Impacts:
Noise and vibration from crews and heavy equipment can be expected. Use of equipment like vac trucks, required to locate utilities and excavate, and activities like hoe-ramming, roller compacting etc. are done during daytime hours. All construction vehicles and equipment, working overnight will be equipped with broadband back-up alarms. Trucks use approved haul routes and workers and contractors park in designated parking areas. Site lighting for overnight is required to maintain safe working conditions for workers. Light plants, generators and compressors are placed onsite and as far away from neighbouring homes to the extent possible.
Dust control will be in place, as needed. Street sweeping, and cleaning will be ongoing along truck routes and around construction zones.
All pedestrian, cycling, bus, and vehicular movements will generally be maintained during construction, with some detours. Pedestrians and cyclists should use extra caution when localized detours are in place and adhere to all posted signage, when travelling to ensure safety, as patterns may have changed.
The construction work outlined in this notice is subject to change. Work may be delayed or extended due to weather or other unforeseen circumstances.
