The City of Fort Myers project will replace underground sewer mains connecting to the Central Advanced Wastewater Treatment Plant. This connection will allow more wastewater to flow to the Central plant where the City produces reclaimed water. This project will also resurface the roadway and replace existing sidewalk where disturbed by pipe replacement.
Part I of the project replaces underground pipes along Raleigh Street, across Michigan Avenue to Indian Street where the installation will turn to the west and continue to Palm Avenue and to just south of Lime Street. Part I of the project was completed in 2018.
Part II of the project replaces underground pipes along Palm Avenue from Michigan Avenue south to Canal Street. Part II of the project was completed in early 2019.
Part III of the project replaces sanitary sewer force main pipe along Coronado Road from Cortez Boulevard east to US-41; Nelson Street from Coronado Road to Braman Avenue; east on Braman Avenue to Grand Avenue; and north on Grand Avenue to Hanson Street. In addition, this project includes Coronado Park renovations and installation of new sidewalks on both sides of Coronado Road and Nelson Street, a section on Braman Avenue just west of Grand Avenue, and on the east side of Grand Avenue. Part III of the project is anticipated to be completed in spring 2020.
