The project will start in the 1000 block of Gemini Avenue and progress towards Reseda Drive. The  scope of work includes resurfacing the asphalt street.

As a result of the construction activities, please be aware of flagmen and orange traffic cones that will be put in place on site to help with traffic flow through the construction zon e as temporary lane closures are expected . One lane will be open in each direction during peak traffic hours. Residents and businesses may experience temporary delays accessing Gemini Avenue, as well as individual driveways, and may experience an increase in noise levels because of trucks and equipment.
