How will the city ensure that impacts to the operation of my business are minimized during construction?

During construction of each phase, safe pedestrian access to all businesses will be made available during normal business hours. Temporary signage will be installed for alternative parking, business access, and pedestrian access. During work in the street, temporary closure of on-street parking should be expected in addition to any required traffic lane closures and/or detours. Typical construction hours will be from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday with weekend work accommodated as necessary. Overnight work may be considered in key locations to expedite construction and where construction activities are not considered a hazard or nuisance (per ordinance) to surrounding businesses and residents.

Construction will be restricted during the holiday season generally between Thanksgiving and New Years as well as during major downtown events such as Arts in Bloom, Red, White, and BOOM!, and Oktoberfest to minimize any construction-related disruptions.
