Project Approach
The contractor is limited to disturbing 300 feet of sidewalk area at one time. However, paving, striping and some furnishings will be handled for the entire project area. All sidewalk closures and detours will be accessible and well-marked. The permitted work hours are 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. Monday through Friday. Night work requires special permission and consideration. The team’s goal and desire is to schedule work around special events, busy hours of the day and ensure access to businesses throughout the duration of the project.
