How will traffic in my neighborhood be affected? Will there be a lot of trucks and construction vehicles?


The City works with the gas well operators to determine a truck route that will have the least impact on traffic as part of the SUP. The gas well operator must use only the streets designated on the approved truck route, and must pay a road damage remediation fee.

During the mobilization of the drilling rig, there will be around 30 to 40 trucks to move in all the drilling equipment. After the wells has been drilled, those trucks will return to remove the equipment. Also, during the completion period, another 3-4 days, several more large trucks (around 5 to 8) will move in for the fracturing job or completion phase. This traffic is limited to daytime hours only.
