Why does it take so long to complete the project? Why isn’t the contractor working today?

The contractor is required to complete the work by June 30 as specified in the contract. As with all construction, weather plays a role and one day of rain could mean additional days of delay. The construction will be ongoing until the project is completed. However, from time to time, you will notice that there is no activity on your street. With 40 to 50 street sections being resurfaced each year, the contractor will have work in progress on multiple streets. Engineering staff monitors the construction activities on a daily basis and works with the contractor to complete the project on time and within budget.
