The ‘Stop Work Order’ restriction will be in effect on Saturday, October 21, 2017 from 12:01 a.m. until 11:59 p.m. which prohibits all contractors from working on public right-of-ways within the following geographical boundaries:

This ‘Stop Work Order’ applies to anyone that needs to occupy any lanes of traffic on city roadways within the boundaries listed above, including curb lanes.  All maintenance of traffic (MOT) patterns should be removed by 12:00 a.m. on Saturday, October 21, 2017 and work zones secured.  Trenches should be plated and pinned, with all sides of the plates properly ramped with asphalt, before the ‘Stop Work Order’ begins.
