The press release states that the only contractor work that can be done is between Avenida 10 and Substation. You can drive wherever your home is as long as you can park in a parking lot or your own driveway. This is why it is important to find out if we can hire someone to get sand out of individual driveways rather than wait for SRIA folks to do it for us...and possibly destroying anything under ths sand. I know it is free...but for some...they may want to consider paying someone to do it so you can look through the sand somewhat.
