Update on Construction (July 19, 2022):
Evans is continuing work along the north side of Pearl between Willow and Jean, working west to east. This section includes the installation of buried electrical conduit, which they are actively installing as they remove surface materials and prepare the subgrade for new sidewalk, curb and gutter.
Traffic Control and Parking:
Road barricades have been placed on both sides of Pearl between Willow and Jean to allow for east-bound traffic only. Please follow this course as you leave your home (turn toward Jean), or return home (approach from Willow).
We thank you for your patience with this project, and kindly ask that you keep your cars/trucks parked inside your property line as the construction crews come through. They are happy provide assistance in getting you or your tenants in and out of the driveway, but appreciate keeping the coast clear of vehicles near the property line.
No Street Parking on both sides of Pearl between Willow and Jean. This is necessary to keep the construction crews working efficiently while keeping one lane of vehicle traffic open.
As weather allows, we hope this project will maintain its course and get the construction crews in and out swiftly and safely.
Motorists are advised to seek alternate routes in the vicinity of this construction project. Please be aware of, and obey all construction notification, detour and parking restriction signage as it is there for your safety and the safety of the construction workers.
Please help spread the word of this project and pass this information along as you see fit.
