FAQ's

111916

Since curb will be added to the roadway between Bilquist Elementary and Roots Road, storm water will no longer flow off the road. Instead, the new curb will direct water to new catch basins. The water will then flow downstream through new underground storm pipes to storm water management facilities (most likely near the Roots/Webster intersection).

The proposed improvements will impact each property differently. Generally, if a fence is located outside of the public right of way (on private property), and it must be relocated in order to accommodate the road improvements, the owner of the fence will be compensated for the removal and/or relocation of the fence. These impacts will be minimized as much as reasonably possible.

Access to properties will be maintained during construction. Expect delays up to 20 minutes during daytime construction hours.

Existing utilities will be relocated as needed. Above ground utilities will remain above ground.
