UPDATE: Langley Avenue Closure Postponed to Feb. 21
The closure of a section of Langley Avenue between Spanish Trail and Scenic Highway originally scheduled to begin Monday, Feb. 17 has been postponed to Friday, Feb. 21.
The roadway is expected to reopen by Wednesday, March 25, weather permitting.
The road closure is related to construction of the Langley Avenue Diversion Box and Stormwater Conveyance Project, which is part of an ongoing three-phase project to directly benefit the water quality of Escambia Bay and Pensacola Bay while also enhancing the Gaberonne Swamp ecosystem.
Traffic will detour from Langley Avenue to Creighton Road via Spanish Trail or Scenic Highway. Detour signs will be posted in the area. Residents will be provided access to their property during construction.
Construction of the stormwater project is expected to take approximately 75 calendar days to complete, weather permitting.
This final phase of this project will consist of diverting stormwater from the existing Langley Avenue system into the recently-constructed Spanish Trail Pond. This new conveyance pipe will be installed underground within easements obtained from property owners in the area. Project construction has been permitted through the Florida Department of Environmental Protection.
A city construction inspector will be monitoring the contractor and project progress daily. Every effort will be made to minimize the impact during construction, and the contractor will be required to implement all necessary safety precautions onsite.
For questions about this project, please contact City of Pensacola Public Works and Facilities at 850-435-1645.
