Crews will be performing minor repairs on manholes, driveway entries, sidewalks, and curbs. This type of work usually takes up to four hours to complete.

Work schedules may fluctuate due to weather, conditions underground, traffic impacts, subcontractor schedules, and availability of materials.

Typical work hours are 7:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Monday through Friday, but the contractor may schedule work during the same hours on Saturdays.
