Utilities night work downtown starting Jan. 22
The City of Venice Utilities Department will be performing a water main abandonment within the median of Venice Avenue, from Nokomis Avenue to Avenue Des Parques, beginning on Monday, Jan. 22. The work will involve removing underground water main crossings at the Venice Avenue intersections of Nokomis, Nassau, Harbor and Avenue Des Parques. The abandoned water mains will be grout filled upon being severed from the existing water mains.
Also as part of this work, there will be a new fire hydrant installed at the southeast corner of Nokomis and Venice Avenues, and the existing water service for the tennis courts will be relocated from the Venice Avenue right of way to the northeast corner of Avenue Des Parques and Venice Avenue.
This work will be performed at night to minimize disruption to traffic and activity in the downtown area. The abandonment and restoration will take approximately 30 days.
