Golden Shores Undergrounding Update
The survey work of the Golden Shores Utility Undergrounding Project is 87% complete. There are 47 inaccessible homes in the neighborhood, and we encourage those residents to cooperate with the City’s contractor, Craven & Thompson (C&T), to grant access to the exterior utility locations in their rear yard. Currently, this is not impeding progress of the project, but may in the coming months should these homes refuse to cooperate. FP&L will now complete their design to underground electrical service based on the survey work. Simultaneously, C&T is working on a street lighting design, which should be out to bid and awarded within 12 months. We anticipate the bidding and award of the utility undergrounding construction within 16 months.
Golden Shores Pump Station Project
The survey and evaluation work for the rebuilding of the Golden Shores Pump Station is complete. The engineering design for the new pump station is 30% complete. Within 12 weeks, we expect three portable pumps to arrive, which will be used in heavy rain events to supplement the existing pumps and perform as the main pumps while the pump station is under construction. We anticipate the completion of the design by the end of 2020, at which time we will go out to bid.
