Madeira Beach – As rain continues to be in the forecast for the next several days, work on several aspects of the Crystal Island Roadway and Drainage Project may be impacted. After watching the weather forecast for the next few days Gibbs & Register (G&R), has decided to postpone installing curbs on John’s Pass Avenue until the week of June 15th.
The process of installing curbing has three phases; digging out the sides of the roadway and setting string lines, installing the curbing and allowing it to cure, and then cutting the curbing to allow access to residential driveways. During this process, residents in affected areas will not be able to access their driveway for approximately 3-4 days. Affected residents will be allowed to park on John’s Pass Avenue away from the construction zone and will continue to have pedestrian access to their property. Residents with special needs (wheelchair, walker, cane, oxygen, etc.) can contact G&R at 305-590-1584 to schedule transportation assistance from their residence to their vehicle. This service is intended for individuals that will have difficulty traversing the construction zone.
Residents should allow for a minimum of 30-minutes for assistance to arrive. Meanwhile, all the moisture is taking a toll on Flamingo Drive, Lillian Drive, and John’s Pass Avenue which are not yet paved. G&R continues to monitor the roads and make repairs as needed. Residents are advised to avoid driving through standing water whenever possible.
