Notice to Residents/Property Owners:

Crews will be observed performing utility location, as well as clearing, digging, pumping, hauling, and pipe installation along rights-of-way and nearby alleyways. Residents are asked to exercise caution in observance of equipment, trucks, and transport/staging of project materials in work zones and nearby areas.

Property owners are urged to refrain from installing landscape or hardscape items, as well as from making any driveway modifications, until completion of the project, which is expected to continue through 2018. Property owners are also asked to remove any landscape and/or hardscape items that currently exist in the right-of-way area abutting their property (from roadside to 15’ back), prior to commencement of activities, should they wish to preserve or salvage those items. (Note: Driveway pavers/bricks will be palletized and provided to property owners upon removal.)

Pursuant to the approved right-of-way permits granted by the City of Holmes Beach and the City of Bradenton Beach in performing this project, Manatee County is required to restore disturbed areas with #57 stone. All existing infrastructure within the right-of-way that is encountered during construction shall be removed and restored with #57 stone. This includes driveways, landscaping, and trees. For brick paved driveways, the bricks will be stacked and provided to the homeowner. All questions related to restoration and driveway removal should be directed to the City Engineer, Lynn Burnett, P.E., at
