As of the beginning of February, all storm drains, pipes, and underdrains have been installed for this project. The existing road base has also been removed throughout and new crushed concrete sub-base and road base have been installed. Installation of new curbs will begin this week along with sidewalk replacement, as needed. After the curbs are completed, the first layer of asphalt can be installed.

Project work remains centered around storm pipe installation on Palmview Avenue as well as Osceola Road. The contractor has also been working to remove pockets of unsuitable material while installing storm pipes. These efforts will continue to be the focus of the project through mid-January.

The intersection of Osceola Road and Palmview Avenue will be closed for roughly two weeks as the contractor installs storm pipes in that area. Once completed there, work will progress down Osceola Road.

Work on this project remains focused on water main replacement and connections. The new mains have been installed and are being pressurized and chlorinized now, with bacteriological testing to follow later this week. Once these treatment steps have been completed, the contractor will begin tying house service lines to the main over the next 7 to 10 days. Large storm structures are also in place in the rights-of-way throughout the project zone, as stormwater infrastructure will be installed over the next few months.

Work on the Pinellas/Ponce Roadway Project Phases 3&4 is currently focused on replacing old, ductile iron water mains with new PVC and polypropylene mains throughout the project. Crews are installing the mains now on Poinsettia Road near Indian Rocks Road and will continue replacement along Poinsettia Road, Pinellas Road, and Palmview Avenue. While local traffic is permitted throughout the work zone now, there will be a temporary road closure at Osceola Road and Palmview Avenue September 7 - 9 when the water main is tied into that area (detour map below).

The contractor is on-site at this project, which was delayed by a few weeks due to Hurricane Elsa and other heavy rainfall. Crews are currently capping existing irrigation in the right-of-way between sidewalks and back of curbs in preparation for tree and street light removal.
