In areas with minimal restoration or areas where the concrete curb & gutter was replaced, the landscape restoration will be completed with topsoil and seed. In areas where underground utility improvements were made, the landscape restoration will be performed with topsoil and sod.

Commuters may have limited access to the parking stalls along this section of Depot from July 11 through July 13.  During that period, both resident and non-resident and commuter parking permit holders will be allowed to park in any available spots (that is, all permit holders will be able to park wherever they can find a spot and not get ticketed). 

Commuters will not be allowed to park on the neighboring streets.

It would be appreciated if you limit the number of trips along Depot Street to help facilitate construction and provide a better final product. Once the asphalt is rolled for the final time, vehicles can be driven on the new asphalt surface.

The work is dependent on favorable weather conditions, and will be postponed to the next favorable day if rain is in the forecast. We will keep you posted if the schedule changes.

The contractor will not be on-site over the July 4th Holiday. Have a safe and enjoyable Holiday Weekend!!!
