Anticipated Start Date: 2020-08-17
Anticipated End Date: 2020-09-30

Project Objective

A contractor working for JEA (Callaway Contracting, Inc.) will be replacing a failing sanitary sewer manhole located at JEA the sewer pump station at 7677 Gregory Drive between Ricker Road and Old Middleburg Road. Failures to sewer manholes can potentially cause major sewer back-ups and overflows, roadway issues and/or sinkholes if not addressed in a timely manner. 

Construction Conditions

For the safety of our crews, this work will require the removal of ground water with pump systems prior to excavation. Additionally, a temporary above ground by-pass pumping system will be installed in the drainage ditch and beneath the right-of-way portions of driveways along Gregory Drive. This temporary by-pass line is required to maintain customer sewer service for the duration the project. These pump systems will be required to operate continuously (24-7) during the sewer repairs. Please be aware and drive carefully when entering/exiting driveways along Gregory Drive. 

Construction will occur in City of Jacksonville rights-of-way and easements. For the safety of our crews and the general public, JEA will be required to close and detour Gregory Drive at the work location, and around the location of the by-pass line and pump systems. Residents will have access to their homes and motorists will be permitted to drive (with caution) within the sewer by-pass line location (please see work area and detour map below). JEA will also be required to temporarily detour the sidewalk near the work area on Gregory Drive to the opposite side of the road.  

Please observe all construction signs, detours, and general directions provided by the crews working on-site. Please plan ahead for possible delays, especially if your destination is Gregory Drive Elementary School located on Gregory Drive. We apologize in advance for any inconvenience caused by this construction work.
