UPDATE: (Nov. 18) NO SALT on new concrete streets & sidewalks! Please be aware that new concrete streets cannot have salt applied to them for the first year after they've been poured. The use of salt will cause new concrete to deteriorate. Snow removal teams are using sand to treat new concrete streets, after snow or ice incidents. Residents are asked to also use sand on new concrete drive approaches and sidewalks.

UPDATE:  The contractor plans to begin work in mid-September, starting on the West side of the project area and working their way North. Work will begin on Larch Lane, High Point Run and Aurora Knoll Lane.

Parking: Residents may not have access to their driveway while work is being done on the section of their street. Please park away from construction and DO NOT block traffic lanes.

Trash & Recycling Collection: The night before collection day, residents should place their garbage and recycling containers near the curb, away from the barricades of construction zones for collection – which may be across the street or at the end of the cul-de-sac. If work is being done on your side of the street, please move carts to the other side and place in the park strip. Also, to avoid confusion, please put your address on the lid of the carts with a piece of tape.

If garbage collection trucks are not able to get to your street, due to construction work, they will try to collect the next day, before construction begins in the morning -- which could be as early as 6 a.m. For more information, please call 311.

Neighborhood Engagement: Public Works staff members have been meeting with neighborhood associations to give residents the opportunity to view work zones, meet the contractors and ask questions about work being done in their neighborhoods. For questions or concerns, you may reach the Division of Public Works by calling 311 or 427-8311.

Warning: PLEASE DO NOT move barricades placed by the contractor, in an attempt to get into your driveway or down the road. A road that "looks" dry -- but is still barricaded -- is NOT complete. It takes 7 to 14 days for proper cure of cement concrete pavement and drive approaches. If this curing time is not given, and vehicles are driven on the new road, the concrete repair will NOT last and road quality will be comprised!!!!
