1. Sawcutting of concrete pavements after the pouring of the pavement must be done several hours after the installation as the new concrete must be hard enough to hold the machinery. The sawcutting must also be done soon enough after paving so that the sawcutting occurs before the pavement cracks.

2. During the time of the project there are several events taking place, namely Concerts on the Square, in which the Contractor is required by the provisions of the contract to stop work early on those days so that the event is not impacted by the work, and this would prevent the sawcutting from being completed in the timeframe necessary to prevent cracking of the new pavement.

3. Water shut-offs will be required in order to connect the properties within the limits of the project to the new water mains being constructed. Several of these properties are businesses that are very sensitive to water shut-offs during normal business hours, so much so that the business would not be able to operate normally while the water is turned off.

2. Water service reconnections. Most of the ex...
