The replacement of approximately 3.7 miles (20,000 linear feet) of 40+ year old potable water mains and related infrastructure in the City of Sarasota is over half way complete, on budget and ahead of schedule.
As part of the US 41 AC Water Main Replacement project, which started in May of 2017, the installation of 3 to 16 inch water mains has mainly been located in the Arlington Park Neighborhood area. The remaining areas of major work include US 41 by Sarasota Memorial Hospital, Bahia Vista from US 41 to School Ave. and School Ave. from Bahia Vista to Payne Park. The project will be completed in winter of 2018. The project team includes Atkins Global and Jon F. Swift Construction.
“Numerous repairs to the subject mains and related infrastructure have increased over the years and this project is intended to harden some of the City’s infrastructure with modern materials,” said William Swick, Project Manager at the City of Sarasota. “At the project’s completion, the neighborhoods will have increased fire protection, a larger water capacity for service and a sound distribution system.”
