UPDATE: Section of Cypress Street to Temporarily Detour Traffic Beginning April 22 as Part of Cypress Street Stormwater Infrastructure Improvement Project
Due to weather delays, construction of the the Cypress Street Stormwater Infrastructure Improvement Project is now scheduled to begin Thursday, April 22. A section of Cypress Street between H Street and K Street will temporarily detour traffic beginning at 7 a.m. Thursday, April 22.
Construction is expected to take approximately five days to complete, weather permitting. Traffic will be detoured via Sonia Street during construction.
Work will be completed between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. daily, but traffic within this section of Cypress Street will be detoured around the work area 24 hours a day for safety purposes.
This stormwater improvement project will repair and rehabilitate the stormwater manholes located at the intersections of Cypress Street and I Street as well as Cypress Street and J Street. The existing stormwater manholes are in significant disrepair with several leaks.
The City of Pensacola awarded a contract to Vortex Companies of Houston, Texas for completion of the Cypress 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.
