Section of Spring Street to Close Temporarily Beginning Feb. 1 for Construction of Spring Street Stormwater Infrastructure Improvement Project
A section of Spring Street between Wright Street and Gregory Street will temporarily close beginning Monday, Feb. 1 at 6 p.m. for construction of the Spring Street Stormwater Infrastructure Improvement Project.
Construction is expected to take approximately 14 days to complete, weather permitting. Traffic will be detoured around the work area during construction.
Work will be completed between 7 p.m. and 7 a.m. Monday through Saturday, but the roadway will remain closed 24 hours a day for safety purposes.
This stormwater improvement project will repair and rehabilitate the existing 36” pipe and the two connecting stormwater manholes located at the intersections of Spring Street and Wright Street as well as Spring Street and Gregory Street. The existing stormwater pipe and the manholes are several decades old and are in significant disrepair with several leaks.
The City of Pensacola awarded a contract to Vortex Companies of Houston, Texas for completion of the Spring Street Stormwater Infrastructure Improvement Project.
A city construction inspector will be monitoring the contractor and project progress daily. During construction, the contractor will be required to implement all necessary safety precautions onsite.
