CITY OF TALLAHASSEE NEWS RELEASE:
Next week, the City of Tallahassee Underground Utilities will establish partial lane closures along Capital Circle Southeast between approximately Dick Wilson Boulevard and Connor Boulevard for sanitary sewer work. The contractor, Sandco, will be given the notice to proceed on Monday.
The innermost northbound and southbound lanes, as well as the median turn lanes along this stretch of Capital Circle Southeast, (beginning north of Dick Wilson Boulevard and south of Connor Boulevard) will be closed. The two remaining northbound and southbound lanes of Capital Circle SE will remain open during this portion of construction.
The intersection of Capital Circle Southeast and Dick Wilson Boulevard will also experience temporary closures during nighttime hours.
Construction will take place 24 hours a day until the work is completed. Work will halt on Thursday night on weekends when either Florida A&M University or Florida State University has a home football game. Work is anticipated to be completed by the last week in January 2010.
Motorists are urged to exercise extreme caution in this area, as there will be crews and heavy machinery present.
Crews will be completing sanitary sewer work as part of continuing construction on the Capital Circle Sewer Upgrade Project. The Capital Circle Sewer Upgrade Project includes a replacement of the sewer main underneath Capital Circle that was damaged during Tropical Storm Fay. The damage caused by Tropical Storm Fay has the potential to cause sewage spills. Although the work may at times disrupt traffic, it is required to protect the environment by installing the new sewer line.
