What will the construction look like, how will it affect my business, and will we be able to use the sidewalk? 

Curb and Gutter Work
  • The parallel parking in the area of construction will be closed.
  • The new curb line will be forms and poured.
  • The sidewalk will be passable around the construction.
  • The curb line will be in a different location than currently exist.
  • There will be gravel fill between the new curb line and the existing sidewalk. This will be a walkable surface with no dirt.

Sidewalk Work 
  • This work will be done in three sections in coordination with businesses.
  • The parallel parking lane will be coned off to allow pedestrians to walk in the edge of the pavement around the sidewalk.
  • Care will be taken to fill in or bridge any gaps in the sidewalk during construction.
  • Concrete will be placed in one day.
  • Brick work will be done within 2 days of concrete allowing for full pedestrian access.
Communication and Power Conduit Work
