Work will begin at 7:00 AM (M – F) and will finish around 5:00 PM. If you are within the active work zone limits and park your car in your driveway at night, please be sure to move it prior to the 7:00 AM start time, so you don’t get blocked by the construction. We understand that this may be a short-term inconvenience, but we hope this work will have a positive long-term impact in your neighborhood.

If you own underground facilities within a couple feet of the curb such as heated driveways, irrigation systems or underground dog fencing please contact us ASAP.   Rafferty and Galasso cannot be responsible for damage to private utilities if they are unaware of their existence.
