WEEK 5: Street resurfacing and natural gas infrastructure upgrades
Construction crews took advantage of nice weather last week to make progress in the citywide street resurfacing program. The work is currently focused in West Pensacola and some sections of downtown. In all, more than 1800 city blocks, or approximately 119-miles of paved streets, will be rehabilitated to deliver a smoother, safer ride and improve the appearance of Pensacola’s neighborhoods and commercial districts.
Residents and property owners are reminded to remove vehicles parked on the street before work begins. They are being notified by mail of work planned to begin in their area. Then, 24 to 48 hours in advance of work on a street, construction personnel are going door-to-door to distribute reminders.
Potential impacts associated with the resurfacing work may include:
- Congestion from construction vehicle traffic.
- Noise, dust, and vibration.
- Temporary street closures and detours.
- On-street parking restrictions.
