BRIEF:  Depending on proximity to the work zone, those in the area could hear portions of the construction work. All work is being done within permitting guidelines, including allowed noise levels. Water service may be disrupted overnight while this work occurs.
It is important to note that field conditions can change rapidly and Lane’s goal is to work safely and swiftly to minimize impacts to the areas where they work. The schedule is progress- and weather-dependent. Pedestrian pathway detours and street lane closure signs will be posted accordingly. Please follow construction signage and be aware of construction workers and vehicles within the work zone(s). Pedestrians are advised to follow work zone signage in the sidewalk area.
