All work described is subject to change based on weather conditions and materials supply. Thank you to all residents for their assistance with moving their vehicles and patience as we reconstruct our public roads. 

As a continued reminder, this is an active construction zone and please stay out of the roadway when work is occurring, especially children! 

Safety tip! – if you have the need to enter the construction zone, please give our flaggers a heads up and they can tell you how best to stay safe. Plus it’s a boring job and they would love a quick chat!
