The City’s goal is to minimize the construction impact to businesses in the project area. We will let visitors and residents know that businesses remain open throughout construction through an advertising campaign. Contractors will also be required to place “Businesses are Open” signs at appropriate locations on their site fencing. Throughout the project every effort will be made to ensure that parking, traffic accommodation, transit and project phasing will facilitate access to businesses.
