UPDATE: Langley Avenue Stormwater Conveyance Project Construction to Begin Feb. 11
Please see updated Langley Avenue closure timeline highlighted.
Construction of the Langley Avenue Diversion Box and Stormwater Conveyance Project will begin Tuesday, Feb. 11, part of an ongoing three-phase project to directly benefit the water quality of Escambia Bay and Pensacola Bay while also enhancing the Gaberonne Swamp ecosystem.
The project will require a section of Langley Avenue between Spanish Trail and Scenic Highway to be closed to through traffic beginning Monday, Feb. 17, with traffic detouring from Langley Avenue to Creighton Road via Spanish Trail or Scenic Highway. Detour signs will be posted in the area. Residents will be provided access to their property during construction.
The roadway is expected to reopen by Thursday, March 19, weather permitting.
Construction of the stormwater project is expected to take approximately 75 calendar days to complete, weather permitting.
This final phase of this project will consist of diverting stormwater from the existing Langley Avenue system into the recently-constructed Spanish Trail Pond. This new conveyance pipe will be installed underground within easements obtained from property owners in the area. Project construction has been permitted through the Florida Department of Environmental Protection.
A city construction inspector will be monitoring the contractor and project progress daily. Every effort will be made to minimize the impact during construction, and the contractor will be required to implement all necessary safety precautions onsite.
