Eustis, Fla. (May 1, 2018) Crews are continuing to work towards the completion of Phase 1. To date, the new 12” waterline is installed up to Chesterfield Court and sanitary sewer for Phase 1 is completed and already in service. Built Rite Construction is planning to have curbing installed along the north side of Lakeview Avenue between Bay Street and Center Street by the end of this week, with the replacement of the driveways and sidewalks to follow next week.
Phase 1 - should have been completed by now, but due to unforeseen conflicts with existing utilities and additional work on Hillcrest Court added to the contractor’s scope of work, which in return delayed construction. Estimated time-frame to have Phase 1 at 90% complete and re-opened is by May 28th. Once Phase 1 is paved, Lakeview Avenue from Bay Street to Center Street will be reopened for 2-way traffic.
Phase 2 - Center Street to the eastern leg of Hillcrest Court will be shut down for construction starting in June or July. The traffic pattern will remain the same for Phase 2. Lakeview Avenue will be eastbound only. All westbound traffic should follow the detour.
Thank you for your patience during this period. If you have any questions, please call Public Works at 352-483-5480.
