The project is expected to get underway in late June/early July and continue for approximately 18 – 24 months, depending on weather, unanticipated circumstances, and seasonal access restrictions to creek areas.
As with all large construction projects, there will be unavoidable disruptions to nearby neighbors and to motorists traveling in the area – we apologize for noise, dust, lane closures, traffic delays, and any other impacts or inconveniences.
This construction includes significant roadway excavation, widening, paving, landscaping, traffic signal installation, culvert installation, utility upsizing, and utility relocations.
Once construction ends, the many benefits of this project will be enjoyed by the residents and businesses in the corridor, as well as by all motorists, bicyclists, and pedestrians who use this part of Fulton Road.
The project includes the removal of trees and fences along this segment of Fulton Road to allow for the widening (per prior agreements with adjacent property owners). Trees will be replaced.
There will be periodic on-street parking restrictions in various areas.
Access to driveways in the project area will be maintained; however, there will be times when excavation or paving work will temporarily limit access, potentially up to several hours.
Be sure to sign up for our construction email updates for awareness of upcoming work and any changes in schedules.
Traffic control plans will be implemented for the various phases of work to help minimize traffic disruptions during this work, taking into account the need for emergency access in the event of wildfire or other potential emergency. This includes electronic message boards to inform motorists of construction and traffic control changes.
Driveway access to residences and businesses will be maintained. However, there will be times when certain roadwork and paving will temporarily limit access, sometimes for several hours. Neighbors will be notified of specific access limitations.
Trash/recycling collection, mail/package delivery, bus service, and public safety vehicles will be accommodated.
During construction, the contractor will implement a Pedestrian Traffic Control Plan, which includes detour signs and temporary walking paths to provide access throughout the duration of the project. That access will often be on the opposite side of the street from where demolition/construction is actively taking place.
