For short intervals, there will be noise and vibration coming from the site as machinery is used to loosen each sheet pile before it is pulled out of the ground. Once started, the work is expected to last one week.

Sawcutting will take place over two mornings, between 7 and 10 am. Traffic detours will be in place to safely guide traffic around the work zone.
