Construction is expected to take approximately 90 working days to complete, weather permitting. 

All work is to be contained within the limits of the city-owned Bartram Park, and no impact is expected to traffic flow or adjacent properties.

A city construction inspector will be monitoring the contractor and project progress daily. During construction, a portion of Bartram Park will be closed to public access, and the contractor will be required to implement all necessary safety precautions onsite.
