Before each of the dates listed, preparatory work will need to be done. Only milling and paving will be done during these dates. At these times, road surfaces will have raised structures, and the roads should be avoided during the work times, if possible. Drivers should proceed with caution when they cannot avoid the roads.
The schedule will be applicable if weather conditions are food. During construction times, police will be on hand to direct traffic and help residents navigate the areas. Emergency access will be available throughout the paving work.
If a driveway must be closed, each will be closed no more than one hour. On-street parking will not be available at this time, and minor traffic delays will be likely.
