|What is this project?|
This construction project is for the extension of Hudson Drive, between Miles Road and Merritt Road and the reconstruction of the Heritage Park parking lot.
|How long will it take for this project to be completed?|
|We anticipate that this project will be completed in six months, weather permitting. If there are any delays, we will communicate those as soon as possible.|
|Why are we starting this project now?|
|Great question. No matter how we schedule this, it will have some overlap with the school year. We would rather introduce the project with experienced parents now instead of at the start of the school year with new parents.|
|Will I be able to use the gravel lot?|
|No, this parking lot will be closed and will be used for the staging of construction equipment. It may take a couple of days for the equipment to arrive, but it will be closed throughout the duration of the project. The Heritage Park parking lot will be available, however.|
|Will the sidewalks be blocked off for those walking to school?|
|No, sidewalks will be clear for walkers to school.|
|Will there still be two-way traffic?|
|Yes, two-way traffic will be available through the duration of the project.|
|When will contractors be working on this project?|
|Contractors will be working between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m., Monday – Friday, with some Saturdays as they are able. Contractors will try to schedule street paving during weeks that school is not in session. We will work as hard as we can to move this project along as fast as possible.|
We appreciate everyone’s patience with this project. We know that construction can be frustrating, and we know that it is an added pain to have a construction project near schools.
Please know that we are sensitive to these concerns and we will work diligently to move this project as fast as possible. If you have any concerns, please contact Amanda Chi, Assistant to the City Manager at email@example.com.
