Utility Line Undergrounding

Location: Collins Avenue Corridor, Other Areas

Description: City-wide undergrounding of FPL and other overhead utility lines and equipment, installation of decorative street lighting and the removal of utility poles. The undergrounding of overhead utility lines on FPL poles will minimize power outages due to extreme windstorm and hurricane conditions and improve the aesthetics of the City. Most of the existing poles and streetlights do not conform to the city’s streetscape plan.
