NOTICE OF CONSTRUCTION ACTIVITY IN YOUR AREA
Verizon will be installing fiber optic cables and associated equipment along Sheridan, Wellington, and Lake Shore Drive in the coming weeks starting Thursday March 28th. These improvements will enhance the speed and dependability of wireless communications in the area. The impacted area of the project is depicted below.
Type of Construction: The fiber optic cables will be installed underground (within right-of-ways) using directional boring, in order to minimize damage to the right-of-ways as well as some open cut trenching. There will also be installation of three (3) communication manholes, two (2) quazite boxes and the replacement of two (2) light poles. After installation, splicing will be performed to complete the project. In the event that pedestrian or vehicle traffic needs to be altered to accommodate construction equipment, barriers and signage will be installed to ensure the safety of those in the area. Any disturbed areas will receive an immediate temporary restoration solution, with a permanent restoration to previous or better condition to be performed later.
Impacted Area: Construction will start at the north west corner of Sheridan and Belmont and continue south to Wellington. We will then head east in the sidewalk on Wellington before turning south on Lake Shore Dr. and terminating just north of Oakdale.
Parking Restrictions: No parking signs will be posted along the following boundaries and will be in effect during construction hours:
- 300-419 W Wellington Ave.
- 2920-3001 N Lake Shore Dr.
- 300-415 W Belmont Ave.
- 2967-3200 N Sheridan Rd.
