Impacts and mitigationImpacts and mitigation<div class="ExternalClassFA34B85857A04CE4906419D8886F320B"><p>There will be times when some local residents and businesses may not be able to directly access their property by vehicle when construction activities block driveways. The project’s community liaison will work with residents and businesses in advance of construction to determine alternate options for access and parking. Whenever possible, local residents will be provided vehicle access to their property as long as it is deemed safe by the contractor. Emergency services will have access to properties at all times.</p>​​<br></div>
