Things to Know

Traffic control – During construction there may be flagmen or cone placement. Road access may be restricted for periods of time. Be safe driving through this area if you’re allowed to do so!

Driveway and parking access. There will be times that you will not be able to access your driveway. Plan accordingly.

Sidewalk closures and removal.

Side Street access points. Side streets will be available for parking but not always for access on to James Street. Barricades will be placed at the ends of the streets to prohibit traffic turning on to James Street.

Garbage Collection – trucks will not always be able to access the front of your yard – a central location on a side street may be necessary. If this happens you will be notified by Michels Corporation—see Adam Schultz telephone number below.

Sidewalk & driveway replacement—when concrete is poured it takes time to “cure” so you will not have access to your driveway or sidewalks during this time. The contractor will keep you informed.

Restoration of yards and driveway areas. The contractor is responsible for cleaning up after the installation of the sidewalks and driveways as well as along the street/curb line.

Water shut offs / connections – watch for flyers on your front door or a knock on your door to tell you that water will be shut off and for how long. On those days it may be a good idea to have extra water set aside should you need it. Bottled water is also good to have on hand.
