What to expect

  • Lane closures will occur during this work, please take extra care while travelling in the areas.
  • Equipment and work trucks will be present on the roadway as crews move from one borehole to the next.
  • Drilling crews will be at each borehole location for approximately two to three weeks, with occasional follow up visits to each location as required.
  • You may experience noise and vibration related to drilling, hydro-vacuuming, and equipment use. Efforts will be made to keep noise levels to a minimum.
