Lanes will be excavated down to the base or sub-grade, restabilized, and re-surfaced. Gas lines may be impacted during this work, and the City will work closely with Apex Utilities as needed.  

During reconstruction, access to the back lane will be limited and/or unavailable, and there may be impacts to RV parking and waste collection. Impacted residents are encouraged to make arrangements and move any RVs ahead of construction, and to keep an eye out for specific details and timelines from the contractor as the work begins and progresses.
