|Driving on street allowed.|
|Parking on street restricted (cars must be parked 1,000 feet away from construction site). All cars in the “No Parking” zone during construction time will be towed.|
|Parking in driveway allowed.|
Access open to through traffic. Can drive on the side of street where paving has not taken place yet.
|Street parking is restricted (cars must be parked 1,000 feet away from construction site). All cars in the “No Parking” zone during construction time will be towed.|

PLEASE NOTE: The City and project contractor will coordinate with trash companies, the post office and other agencies to minimize any disruption of services.
- Park off-street during construction and pay close attention to parking notices. There will be detailed notices explaining when the streets will be closed and re-opened throughout the resurfacing process.
- Make a plan for when you will need your car during construction. Driving through the newly resurfaced street will ruin your car, driveways and the project, forcing contractors to begin again.
- Drive slowly through the construction zone during the times cars are allowed on the street. This will prevent rock-fragments from damaging windshields.
- Keep children and pets away from the street during resurfacing. At times the pavement will be extremely hot and dangerous.
- Don’t run water onto the street the night before or after construction. Run-off will delay work and damage the new surfacing.
