Sidewalks in this area have also been replaced as needed and brick paver restoration is underway, with sod to be installed within the next two weeks.

In addition, new water mains have been installed between Manatee Road to Orlando Road and will be in service within the next week. Work on storm structures and underdrain in this area will start within the next two weeks.

Curbs and road base have been removed on Palmetto Road from Orlando Road to Sarasota Road and from Sarasota Road to Ocala Road. Over the next few weeks, new curbs and road base will be installed in these segments, and then the process will be repeated in the southern sections of Palmetto Road. All water mains within these two road segments are now installed and will be put into service after testing from the Florida Department of Health.

Work on the Palmetto Roadway Project has begun and equipment has been staged in the area. The road is still open for through traffic at this time. The contractor recently began replacing water mains at north end of the Palmetto Roadway Project between (1) Orlando Road and Sarasota Road and (2) Sarasota Road and Ocala Road. This work will continue over the next several weeks.
