Residents near the interchange can expect the following construction activities to take place during the daytime:

  • Excavators, bulldozers, and compactors will be used to construct the duct bank. Noise from equipment will be audible and some equipment may cause vibrations.
  • Trucks will deliver material to the site and haul material away. Noise from equipment and moving of material will be audible.

  • Pedestrians and cyclists should use extra caution and adhere to posted signage when localized detours are in-place, to ensure safety.
