Please, No Trespassing

With the public’s safety in mind, the project team would like to remind everyone that the SouthEast Connector is an active construction zone at all times, and only authorized personnel are allowed on the project site. Flying drones over the project is also prohibited by law as the project lies within five miles of the airport. Following the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) regulations, model-aircraft operators flying within five miles of an airport must obtain permission from the airport and control tower to fly. Please do your part in keeping our project a safe work zone, for your protection and the construction crews, and do not trespass on the project site.
