Tunnel Works Program Informational Meeting to be Held October 25, 2017

October 20, 2017

City Ultilities’ Tunnel Works Program is designed to keep combined sewer overflow from reaching our rivers during most rain events.  This multi-year project is finishing its design stage and is about to begin construction of a deep rock tunnel in Foster Park.

There will be inconveniences.  There will be traffic pattern changes.  But we can prepare for these events through awareness and asking questions.

Frank Suarez, Director of Public Information for City Utilities and Public Works, has invited neighbors from Southwood Park and other neighborhoods in the Foster Park area to a meeting October 25, 6PM, at The Summit.  You may have already received a mailing about it.

If you have questions, please attend.

Here are some links to the project:

Here is the letter the Association received as an invitation:

We are inviting neighborhoods around the Foster Park area to an update meeting on the deep rock tunnel retrieval shaft that will be starting soon inside the park.

Residents in your neighborhood should be receiving a mailed postcard later this week – but I wanted to reach out to you to let you know about the meeting. The meeting is October 25 at 6:00 p.m. at The Learning Center at The Summit – 1025 West Rudisill Boulevard, Building 1025, Door G.

Again, this meeting will focus on the work that begins next month inside Foster Park.  It is not about the near surface pipe work that will occur in neighborhood streets around the year 2020.  

Thank you for your time and for your commitment to your neighborhood.
