Hard Rock Construction Co., LLC crews continue to install new and improved waterlines to replace the 70+ year-old systems currently in place. Crews have replaced 80 percent of the waterlines and repaved 35 percent of the roadways within the scope of the project. Water main connections continue this month on St. Ferdinand Place, Mithra and Mendez streets. New concrete roadways and curbs will be poured in additional lanes of Pauline Drive, Mendez and Montegut streets. The entire project is anticipated to wrapped up in fall 2021.
Residents will continue to be informed ahead of any work that will involve utility disruption and / or impact their parking and access to their streets.
