Upcoming Work: The Contractor will be finishing all underground improvements throughout the project limits north of Charles Court and restoration efforts will commence thereafter. Crews will continue with underground improvements south of Charles Court. 

Resident Impacts: 

•    Access to all homes will be maintained, except when work is being performed directly in front of your residence. This disturbance will only be temporary and full access will be restored with gravel for safe ingress and egress at the end of the working day.
•    Most of the work this week will occur on Cambridge Drive from Charles Court to Middlesex Court, and along Anthony Road. We encourage residents to find alternate routes and avoid this area.
•    If you wish to park off the project limits during the day or overnight, the Police Department has been notified that overnight street parking will occur; please park legally regarding all other laws and ordinances.

Additional Information:
The Contractor will attempt to complete as many water service installations as possible each day, therefore, the schedule above is an estimate based on planned production and a favorable weather forecast. The exact date of each water service disruption will be known through written notice to each residence's door the day prior to work is scheduled.

Keep in Mind: Due to material shortages, temporary stone will be placed where the existing sidewalk has been removed on Dundee Road. It is anticipated that the new sidewalk will be placed by the end of September. 

Planned work is subject to change based on several factors including the weather, Contractor availability and unforeseen circumstances. Motorists are urged to pay close attention to orange signs and flaggers in work zones, obey posted speed limits, avoid cell phone use, and be alert for construction workers and equipment.
