The police department will operate as normal during the bridge construction project. Patrol officers are trained from the start of their careers to be aware of hinderances to response routes and to be prepared with alternative courses to respond efficiently and safely to calls. The police department has operational plans in place for those times of full closure on N. Main Street. In addition, the police department will be monitoring the work zone and the surrounding areas to address traffic and safety concerns as they arise.
The Fire Department administration has and will continue to work with the Great Lakes Construction project manager, construction manager and safety coordinator in formulating emergency operational plans for the overall safety of the residents, businesses, visitors and all involved with the bridge construction. These emergency operational plans with be implemented, reviewed and updated on a continual basis throughout the entire project.
