City public works projects that are currently taking place throughout the city limits.
Bates Ave WWTP Expansion:
The engineering scope has been approved by the City Commission. Based on the kick-off meeting, City staff has been supplying the engineer with sample results, DEP reports and as-builts from previous projects.
Commission Chamber Renovations:
For the past three months, the Eustis City Commission has been meeting at the Community Building while an extensive renovation has been underway to the City Hall Commission Room. The renovation included new paint, carpeting, seating and sound system. In addition to the room being visibly improved and more comfortable, residents should also be able to notice a significant improvement to the sound in the room as well as improved livestreaming for those unable to attend meetings in person. The City was able to move this project forward as a result of the CARES Act monies the City received as part of monies provided by the federal government in response to the coronavirus pandemic.
Eastern Area Water, Reclaimed & Wastewater Hydraulic Modeling:
The hydraulic model is complete. The Project Engineer and the Water Department are finalizing a few field measurements to complete the reclaimed portion of the hydraulic model. The Water & Wastewater Department now has a functional computer based hydraulic model for water and waste water which will be an effective tool to simulate any potential changes in the eastern water and wastewater system.
Eastern WWTP Transfer Pump Station:
The City’s contracted engineering firm completed all the bidding plans and specifications as well as all associated permitting. City staff is currently working on preparing the bid documents to advertise this project for contractor bidding.
Woodward Ave. Improvements:
On September 7, improvements will begin in two phases:
Art Walker Construction will begin milling and removing asphalt on Woodward Ave. from Lakeshore Dr. to King St. Milling will take 2 days (weather permitting). This portion of Woodward Ave. will be closed for through traffic, while crews are milling the asphalt. City crews will begin the removal of the concrete road base and curbing on Woodward Ave. from Lakeshore Dr. to King St. beginning the week of Monday, September 13th. Upon demolition of this section of Woodward Ave., crews will install new curbing, new lime rock base and new asphalt, along with storm improvements. During construction this portion of Woodward Ave will be closed for through traffic. Only residents living in the construction zone, Jackson St., South of Woodward Ave., and Green Lake Dr. will be permitted on this portion of road. City crews will be on hand to direct you if the need arises.
Phase II will begin immediately after the completion of Phase I. Art Walker Construction will be doing all the work for this project. Phase II is Woodward Ave between King St and the railroad right of way. Phase II scope includes removal and replacement of asphalt, roadbase and curbing. It also includes storm and sanitary improvements. Portions of Woodward Ave will be closed to through traffic during construction. Art Walker Construction has 270 days to complete Phase II of the project.
