Good afternoon,

Wow! It has been quite a busy 24 hours. A HUGE thank you to everyone for your efforts during and after these storms. As a group, we have dealt with (and continue to deal with) hundreds of downed trees, damaged traffic signals, signs, disrupted work zones and much more. This storm clean-up work is such a critical part of what we do and is so appreciated by me and our community. Again, thank you!

In the middle of all of this, we have implemented new COVID-related work rules, effective Monday. Once again, masks will be required indoors, whenever you leave your assigned workspace. We made this decision with all employees’ safety in mind, especially those who remain unvaccinated and are particularly vulnerable to the new Delta variant. If you have any questions about these new rules, please let me or Nicole know.

I hope Mother Nature gives us all a break this weekend, you have all earned it for sure.

Take care and stay safe,
