What to expect during construction
Our contractor will excavate the ground to start the work. After it's complete, the affected streets, alleys and sidewalks will be restored. In some cases, the finished alley pavement width will be increased slightly to conform to current City standards or pavement elevations may be changed to improve overall drainage. Some restorative landscaping may be done on the City's property between the pavement/sidewalk and your property line.
Construction sites can be dangerous places. Please do not let anyone, especially children, enter the work area. Equipment and materials will also be stored near the construction site. Barricades are set up for your protection and for the protection of our workers. It is illegal to move these barricades at any time.
Access to your property and your alley may be limited during the construction period. Road closures will be clearly marked with signage and barricades to keep our workers and the public safe. Please move any vehicles you may require during this time in advance of construction.
Parking on the affected street(s) will be restricted for the duration of our project to allow the contractor to safely complete their work.
If construction takes place in the alley where your garbage is normally collected, garbage pickup will be temporarily moved to the front street. The garbage collection schedule will remain the same. Pick up on the street will continue until the alley is paved and barricades are removed.
You may experience a water outage during any of the construction projects identified under project details. Here's how to prepare for planned and unplanned water outages.
Temporary water lines
If we need to shut off your water during construction and we hook you up to a temporary water line, there will be no consumption charge for water provided through the temporary line. You will only pay the monthly basic charges for water supply and the water consumption provided by regular metering service.
