Two questions:

Is there a requirement that the general contractor of a project keep the roadways they use clean? At the above mentioned project site, dump trucks, delivery trucks and concrete trucks have been tracking mud, dust and dirt up and no one seems to care that this is a residential neighborhood. The air quality with all these trucks and dirt is horrible.

Secondly, is there anything the police can do to slow down the construction traffic in front of this school construction? Large semi-trucks, dump trucks and construction food trucks barrel through this neighborhood and refuse to stop at posted stop signs. I'm afraid it's going to take an accident to get these trucks to stop speeding.

Answer to question 1 provided by Steve Covington, Chief Building Official:

Yes, contractors are required to maintain public streets clear of tracked on mud, dirt, etc. from their construction activitiy. They are also required to take measures to minimize the dust such as watering the site. An inspector will be visiting the site to address your concerns.

Answer to question 2 provided by Sergeant Gina McFarlin, Police Department:

A directed patrol will be created for that area and placed in district books for enforcement. What that means is the district and traffic officers will periodically spend some time in that area conducting specified speed and stop sign enforcement. We are committed to doing our part to enforce the traffic laws in an effort to provide safe and secure streets for our residents.
