Access on Pheasant Ridge Drive

The project will be constructed in two phases.  The first phase will be reconstructing the north side of Pheasant Ridge Drive.  The second phase will be the reconstruction of the south side of Pheasant Ridge Drive.  Traffic Control will be put into place to maintain traffic in two directions for each phase of construction.  It is the goal of the project to keep access available for businesses throughout the project, with only minor disruptions.                         

Irrigation Systems

We would ask for your help in minimizing potential damage to your irrigation's systems.  All of the curb and gutter and sidewalk will be removed for the project if you have any irrigation in front of your property, we would ask you to mark the location of your sprinkler heads.  This will help the contractor to minimize or avoid damaging the irrigation system.
