Phase 1 and Phase 2 ongoing project activities include:
- FPL construction material continues to be stored at a site located approximately five miles northeast of the Island in Manatee County. This location allows the undergrounding contractor to secure and store the FPL undergrounding materials so they can be delivered to the construction site as needed.
- FPL has started the utility undergrounding construction of the feeder conduits along GMD. For Phase 1, ongoing installation of feeder conduits is underway at the south end of the island (New Pass Bridge – Longboat Club Road) and will continue north toward the end of Country Club Shores. For Phase 2, work along GMD will start at Longboat Pass Bridge and move south to Dream Island Road.
- Undergrounding construction work in Phase 1 neighborhoods will begin in early 2020 and is expected to complete by late summer 2020. Residents and businesses will be notified in advance of upcoming construction activities planned for their neighborhood.
Looking Ahead - 2020
FPL is currently working on the design plans for Phase 3 and Phase 4 of the utility undergrounding project. Once complete, the project team will work with FPL to develop a construction schedule that will coordinate installation of the town streetlight and fiber lines with the FPL undergrounding construction activities.
