The Town of Longboat Key is taking all overhead utility lines along Gulf of Mexico Drive and in the surrounding neighborhoods and placing them underground. Known as The Gulf of Mexico Drive (GMD) Project and Neighborhood Project, this “undergrounding” project includes moving FPL, Comcast, and Frontier lines underground as well as having the contractor install a Town-wide fiber optic network and smart pole street lighting. These utility upgrades and enhanced technology are consistent with the referendum and will take place along the entire length of the barrier island.
