Anticipated Impacts

Noise and vibration from trucks and heavy equipment is expected. Construction activities will include: asphalt removal, excavation and grading work using excavators, bulldozers, and compactors, installation of a trench box, trucks bringing granular material and hauling away excavated materials, paving and line painting.

Site lighting for overnight work will be required and crews will place and/or direct the light to mitigate impact on residents nearby.

Motorists should adhere to detours, traffic control signage, posted speed limits, allow for added
travel time and use extra caution when moving through active construction corridors as traffic
patterns change.

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

The safety of the public and workers is paramount,
and we thank you for your patience during construction.
