In addition, the contractor will begin night time paving and drainage operations the week of April 23rd.  Paving will begin after 6:00 pm and finish by 7:00 am.  Drainage work may require alternating one-way traffic.  If alternating one-way traffic is required, it will be between 10:00 pm and 6:00 am.  These operations will be intermittent through the summer construction season.
