Public Safety/Accessibility


Public safety is of the utmost importance to our division.  Police details will be provided throughout the hours of construction operations to direct traffic and assist pedestrians.  Compacted ramps will be provided in the areas where the sidewalks and wheelchair ramps were removed so that pedestrian movements may be safely maintained during construction.


Traffic Mitigation


During Construction hours there will be limited access to Fisher Avenue between Holland Road and Channing Road.  Safety barrels, signing and police details will be in place to help facilitate this critical effort.


Public Communication

Project updates will be prepared and distributed biweekly to monthly depending on the activities being performed via mailed notice, or on this webpage.
