Construction Starts Soon on Mandalay Stormwater Outfall Project

CLEARWATER, Fla. - In order to decrease flooding and to provide water quality treatment, construction is beginning on the Mandalay Stormwater Outfall project along parts of north Clearwater Beach. Some areas south of Baymont Street and north of the roundabout will be affected, including Mandalay Avenue, Poinsettia Avenue, East Shore Drive, and Papaya Street. Construction begins Monday, April 22 at the seawall at the east end of Papaya Street. The project is expected to be complete in late 2013 or early 2014.

The project will bring stormwater improvements to the area. The existing stormwater system will be upgraded, and additional infrastructure will be added along East Shore Drive. Two stormwater treatment units also will be installed in the area. Brief lane or road closures may occur as needed throughout construction, and some parking along the right-of-way may be impacted (Lot #35 will be closed for about 30 days - the date is not known at this time). Lane, road, and parking lot closures will be announced throughout construction.

The project will cost about $1.35-million. A public meeting was held with beach residents Dec. 4, 2012, to share project details and answer questions. To learn more, call the city's Engineering Department at (727) 562-4750.
