Residents will have access to their driveways for the majority of the construction project. However, if and when concrete curb and gutter is being replaced in front of your driveway, the City requires a 5-day minimum curing time with no disturbance to the concrete. There also may be short periods during the day you may not have access to your driveway due to roadway construction. Property owners will be provided as much advance notification as possible when access to driveways will be restricted. If you are planning to replace your entire driveway in 2022, it will be best to schedule that after construction on your street and driveway is completed.

Sections of maintained lawn that need to be removed for construction will be restored with new seed at the end of the project. The contractor is responsible for watering the new seed for 45 calendar days following installation, after which time it is the homeowner’s responsibility. Please do not mow new seed during this time period as it will hinder growth and potentially cause it to die.
The contractor is responsible for protecting, or replacing to their original condition if damaged, most items such as small retaining walls, landscape features or irrigation systems found in the homeowner’s yard.

It is the homeowner’s responsibility to relocate any plantings that will be disturbed by construction; the contractor will not replace plantings with final restoration of the project.
