CONSTRUCTION SCHEDULE
We estimate each section of roadway taking no more than 3 weeks from construction start until the roadway is completed and reopened to all traffic; though, each street will allow local traffic in and out during the construction. Construction on each non-contiguous roadway section will be staggered. Roadway construction is anticipated to begin in as early as April, 2022 and will be completed on or before August 18th, 2022.

INTERRUPTION IN SERVICES
During construction there may be some interruptions in services to your house. Global has coordinated with each of the following entities to minimize these impacts.

U.S. MAIL/NEWSPAPER/PACKAGE DELIVERY
If the mail carrier decides to not deliver mail around construction activity, then your mail will be kept at the post office for pickup. Newspaper and package delivery may or may not incur a disruption. Please call these service providers prior to construction to ensure proper delivery of your parcels or papers.

TRASH AND RECYCLING
Disposal services will require your totes to be moved outside of an area of construction on the typical day of pickup. Tote pickup areas will be designated as needed.

PARKING
On-street parking will not be allowed, but most residents will be able to use their driveways throughout the project. Please consolidate and limit your trips to avoid disruptions to the construction crews. Temporary parking locations outside of the area of construction may be necessary. Please look for signs during construction.

EMERGENCY AND MEDICAL SERVICES
EMS have been made aware of construction in your neighborhood and will respond to emergencies appropriately. Any scheduled medical appointments or special medical needs should be disclosed. Please give us a call so that we can accommodate your needs.

COMMUNITY COORDINATION
We appreciate your patience and cooperation with this project. Hopefully everyone will be pleased with the end  result meant to improve your neighborhood. The Town of Burns Harbor is striving to give residents improved roadways for safety and comfort. Please contact Global Engineering with any questions or concerns. Many residents have walked up to engineering team members directly in the neighborhood, and we welcome answering your questions as best we can.

Periodically, flyers will be distributed throughout the neighborhood with up to date construction scheduling and relevant information. You will receive a more detailed schedule prior to the beginning of construction.

We look forward to the completion of this improvement project for your neighborhood.
