Two drill rigs are used to install the equipment. The drill rigs will be parked at the site of the installation overnight. The two work areas are:

The contractor will perform this work between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m. weekdays. No high impact work will occur until after 8 a.m. This work is scheduled to take 2 weeks to complete.
