General Road Project Information:
Construction and convenience, unfortunately, do not go hand in hand.  Large neighborhood resurfacing projects don't happen overnight and your patience and courtesy is greatly appreciated! Improvements include grinding off the top layer of asphalt and repaving; curb and gutter repairs as necessary; repairs to sidewalks in poor condition or which pose a trip hazard; and new sidewalk installation. Construction work typically occurs between May and October each year.

Please keep in mind during construction season, emergency vehicles will always have access and your garbage service will continue, however your garbage may be picked up earlier in the morning before the contractor begins work. Please have your cans at the curb the night before pick-up.

As always, construction schedules are dependent on weather and are subject to delays.
