    There is a construction going on in my site, so you might hear some noise. I am sorry

    Hi there,

    Please check the following sentence made by myself and let me know if it is okay.

    There is a construction going on in my site, so you might hear some noise. I am extremely sorry for that.

    Thanks,

    Thanks.
    As you can see above, delete the indefinite article before "construction" - we use it as a general term. There is construction going on. There is some construction going on.

    In your opening sentence you used "by myself" which means "alone". Are you sure that is what you meant? I think perhaps you meant to say "... the following sentence which I wrote myself" ie you are explaining that you have not copied it from anywhere but you created it.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Exactly that is what I meant. I wrote myself. I noticed my mistakes.
    Just one more thing. I can see there are two "on" between going and my. Is it possible to use? I mean two same prepositions together.

    Yes. It is going on. Where is it going on? On my site. Put the two together and you get "It is going on on my site".
