We estimate the project taking no more than 4 weeks from construction start until the roadway is completed; though, each street will allow local traffic in and out during the construction. Construction on each non-contiguous roadway section will be staggered. Roadway construction is anticipated to begin on Tuesday, September 5, 2023, and will be completed on or before September 29, 2023.

During construction there may be some interruptions in services to your house. Global has coordinated with each of the following entities to minimize these impacts.


  • If the mail carrier decides to not deliver mail around construction activity, then your mail will be kept at the post office for pickup. Newspaper and package delivery may or may not incur a disruption. Please call these service providers prior to construction to ensure proper delivery of your parcels or papers.


  • Disposal services will require your totes to be moved outside of an area of construction on the typical day of pickup. Tote pickup areas will be designated as needed.


  • On-street parking will not be allowed; however, residents will be able to use their driveways throughout the project. Please consolidate and limit your trips to avoid disruptions to the construction crews. Temporary parking locations outside of the area of construction may be necessary. Please look for signs during construction.


  • EMS have been made aware of construction in your neighborhood and will respond to emergencies appropriately. Any scheduled medical appointments or special medical needs should be disclosed. Please give us a call so that we can accommodate your needs.
