What does this mean for people living along the project?
Vertical access points are being identified all along the interceptor, and in all cases will be situated within the existing right-of-way. We do not anticipate needing access to private property, but work areas will require lane shifts and other traffic configuration adjustments. Street parking in the area may be impacted when lane shifts and traffic configurations are modified, and there will be instances where pedestrian detours will be put into place. Work areas will be secured for public safety using concrete barriers and fencing.
In some areas, things may smell a little bit different because shafts will be opened. BMPs will be used to minimize odors as much as is practicable. The smell is not harmful to the people around it. By and large, we do not anticipate changing access to the area or the operations of daily life.
