Beginning early January 2022, the City's contractor R.P. Utility and Excavation Corporation will start a joint participation project to improve the sanitary sewer and potable water systems on W. Gore Street. This joint participation agreement project will help improve sanitary sewer and potable water services.

Once underway, the City's contractor will use this opportunity to improve sidewalk conditions at previously identified locations. Once the project is fully complete, the contractor will resurface the roadway where construction occurred.

R.P. Utility and Excavation anticipates the project will start on the west side of W. Gore Street. The location is just east of the Orange Center Boulevard and W. Gore Street merger. As work progresses, the contractor will continue to travel east towards Interstate-4 ending the project at Woods Avenue.

Please be advised, should the contractor experience unforeseen circumstances the information stated above is subject to change.

The City's Public Works Department is closely monitoring the global supply chain issue, labor shortages, and increases in the price of materials.

The competitive bid contractor and the City will strive to complete a capital improvement project on time and within budget. However, due to circumstances outside the control of both entities, there may be delays in necessary materials, potential for projects to be completed over budget, and potential delays.

We will continue to work with the community and our stakeholders to address the abovementioned issues and return normalcy to a community.
