Street resurfacing and natural gas infrastructure update

Night work is planned on Palafox Street next week in the City of Pensacola’s street resurfacing program. 

Here is the current nightly schedule for Palafox Street milling and resurfacing activities:

Tuesday, June 6:
  • Main Street to Garden Street
  • Palafox Street/Chase Street intersection
  • Palafox Street/Gregory Street intersection    
Wednesday, June 7:
  • Palafox Place to Main Street
Thursday, June 8:
  • Garden Street to West Jackson Street
  • Palafox Place to Main Street

Work on Palafox Street is planned for nighttime hours to minimize impacts for drivers and businesses. The schedule is weather-dependent, and may be revised in the event of inclement weather.

Impacts of the resurfacing work for drivers and/or property owners may include:

  • Temporary lane closures.
  • Temporary parking restrictions.
  • Temporary modification of entrances/exits.
  • Noise from construction equipment.
  • Traffic congestion.
  • Dust from milling operations.

The city’s construction program is milling and resurfacing approximately 119-miles of streets, or 1800 blocks, throughout Pensacola. Work in the current phase of the program is scheduled for completion this summer. Future phases will begin later this year and extend into 2018.

Property owners and tenants are being notified by mail in advance of work beginning in their area. Then, 24-hours before work begins on a street, construction personnel are distributing information door-to-door. At that time, it is important that vehicles parked on the street be removed so that work can begin. Cars left on the street will be subject to relocation. 

Additional information is available by calling Atkins, Inc., the city’s engineering consultant, at (850) 380-9188.
