Construction on the catch basins and chutes are expected to last until Friday, Sept. 1, and work hours will be between 7 a.m. and 6 p.m. However, due to unforeseen field or weather conditions, the work dates and times are subject to change.

Only emergency vehicles will have full access to the streets, and pedestrian access to will be maintained at all times.

Throughout the duration of the construction, DDC will monitor operations and work within Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) Noise Code Regulations.
