TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- This Saturday, July 12, Meridian Road will be closed between Desoto Street and Seventh Avenue from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
The closure is necessary while crews construct a new water main for Anderson Street. Detour routes around the closure will be clearly marked. Local access for area residents will be maintained.
This work is part of the Officer Ponce Way and Anderson Street Water Main Replacement Project. As part of the project, potable water mains on Officer Ponce Way and Anderson Street are being replaced.
The new mains will provide improved water system pressure and reliability and will also allow for the installation of fire hydrants to provide improved fire protection for properties in the area. The project is anticipated to be completed Friday, July 18.
