Roads and Utilities Capital Projects Timetable

This timetable shows anticipated 2018 construction activities for the District’s roads, water, sewer, and drainage projects. These projects are scheduled to take place this year, pending Council approval of capital project funding.

Please note: start dates and duration can vary due to weather, contractor availability, and other variables.

The District aims to provide advance notice of construction activity as much as possible. On-site signage is installed in advance where traffic impacts are expected, and those in the immediate area receive notice letters with information about construction schedule and anticipated impacts.

We recognize that construction may cause inconvenience, and work to minimize the impact on residents and businesses while this important work is completed.
