Why will some construction take place at night?
Due to the many existing utilities located beneath the roads downtown, the installation of the proposed waterline will require lane or road closures to expedite construction. In some portions of the project area, construction will take place during the overnight and weekend hours in order to minimize traffic, pedestrian, and bus impacts. Night work will allow the contractor to work longer hours, minimizing the overall construction duration. Any service interruptions during the overnight hours will be during low-use periods, minimizing the impact on customers. Sound levels near active construction areas are anticipated to range between 70 and 90 decibels.
