Noise and vibration from crews and equipment is expected. Impacts from night work should be limited, as the work moves throughout the LRT guideway trench.
All construction vehicles and equipment working overnight will be equipped with broadband back-up alarms to minimize operational noise. Trucks use approved haul routes and workers and contractors park in designated parking areas.
Site lighting for overnight work will be required. Crews will place and/or direct the light to mitigate impact on residents at the surface.
The construction work outlined in this notice is subject to change. Work may be delayed or extended due to weather or other unforeseen circumstances.
The safety of the public and workers is paramount, and we thank you for your patience during construction.
Accessibility is an important consideration for the Stage 2 LRT project. The Stage 2 team makes every effort to provide access through and around construction sites. If you require special accommodation, please contact email@example.com.
