Coquina Beach Improvements

Construction Start Date (Phase 2): Fall 2020
Anticipated Completion Date: To Be Determined

This two phase construction project will improve stormwater drainage and parking conditions at the Coquina Beach Parking Area in Bradenton Beach and is being funded largely through Tourism Development Taxes, as approved by the Tourism Development Council and the Manatee County Board of County Commissioners.

The drainage and parking improvements at this popular public beach include replacement of the shell parking surface with porous concrete pavement, new concrete curb, and stormwater collection systems. Porous or “pervious” concrete is an environmentally friendly pavement surface that captures stormwater and allows it to drain into the ground. These improvements will help reduce flooding during prolonged or heavy rainfalls, eliminate washouts in the current shell parking area surfaces, and improve access to the beach, parking spaces, and facilities following rainfall events. In addition to improving stormwater drainage, the project also includes parking space pavement markings, landscaping, and irrigation systems.

Phase 1 improvements included stormwater drainage, parking lot paving, and the installation of 103 native trees and irrigation in the southern parking lot. Phase 1 construction was completed in spring 2020.

Current Activities

Phase 2 of the project includes stormwater drainage and parking enhancements in the northern parking lot. The project also involves striping parking spaces for 865 vehicles, as well as new irrigation and landscaping. Construction of Phase 2 is anticipated to begin in fall 2020.

Force Main 1

Construction Start Date: April 2019
Anticipated Completion Date: Fall 2020

The Force Main 1 project will replace a combination of 4-inch, 6-inch and 8-inch force main pipelines. The replacement of aging sewer infrastructure will improve the capacity and resiliency of the wastewater system by reducing the risk of pipe failures and leaks.

The project starts at Cortez Road W. and Church Street North and runs south to Bridge Street. At Bridge Street the project shifts to Bay Drive South and runs to 5th Street South. It continues down 5th Street South to Gulf Drive North where it turns and runs south to 6th Street South. It then travels down 6th Street South to the end of the street. Once completed, just over one-half mile of new pipe will be installed. The project also includes construction of approximately 800 feet of 10-inch gravity sewer pipeline along 5th Street South to Gulf Drive North, down Gulf Drive North to 6th Street South, and down 6th Street South.

Current Activities

The force mains and the gravity sewer system have been connected to the new wastewater pipes that carry wastewater off the Island to the Manatee County Southwest Water Reclamation Facility. Service laterals from homes and businesses have also been connected to the new gravity system and old force mains and sewer lines have been grouted and abandoned in place.

Construction crews are currently reconstructing the asphalt pavement, pavers, and driveways on 5th Street South and 6th Street South, and performing clean-up in the right-of-way. Resurfacing on Gulf Drive, and restoration of the waterfront area along Gulf Drive are also underway. Asphalt paving on 5th Street South and 6th Street South will take place within the next couple of weeks. Once the asphalt paving work is complete, roadway striping will be installed. Weather permitting, the project is expected to be completed by December 2020.

Construction will continue 6-days per week, Monday through Saturday, to expedite project completion and minimize impacts to residents and motorists. However, these roadways will continue to have intermittent travel lane interruptions and closures during construction activities. If possible, please avoid these roads until work is complete.

AMI Water Main Improvements

Construction Start Date: Spring 2020
Anticipated Completion Date: Fall 2020

The Anna Maria Island (AMI) Water Main project includes the installation of new water main pipelines that will provide better fire protection, water quality and water pressure to the residents and businesses along the beach communities on Anna Maria Island. The project started in early 2020 and is anticipated to be completed in fall 2020.

Current Activities

The AMI Water Main improvements currently include the AMI Phase 32 Water Main. Construction crews have completed the installation of the water main pipes and have made the connections to the existing system. Crews are currently installing water services to the new line. Weather permitting, the project is anticipated to be completed in the next 30 days.

Force Main 8

Construction Start Date: April 2019
Anticipated Completion Date: Fall 2020

This project replaced approximately 1400 feet of 6-inch force main along Marina Drive between 72nd Street and 68th Street.

Current Activities

The construction of Force Main 8 in Holmes Beach is complete. The asphalt paving has been finished and the contractor is currently preparing to apply roadway striping on Clark Drive and Marina Drive. Weather permitting, this work is expected to be completed by December 2020.

Force Main 15

Construction Start Date: April 2019
Completion Date: Fall 2020

The construction of Force Main 15 in Anna Maria is complete. The asphalt paving has been finished and the contractor is currently preparing to apply roadway striping on North Bay Boulevard. Weather permitting, the project is anticipated to be completed by December 2020.

Holmes Boulevard Force Main Replacement

Anticipated Construction Start Date: Spring 2021

Manatee County Utilities owns and operates approximately 4,000 feet of 16-inch force main along Holmes Boulevard which conveys wastewater from a lift station on Holmes Boulevard and 69th Street and discharges to a gravity sewer manhole on 52nd Street. The project also includes replacement of approximately 1,100 feet of 8-inch force main which conveys flows from a lift station located on Marina Drive and 58th Street. The existing force mains have reached the end of their useful operational life and will be replaced with 16-inch and 8-inch PVC pipe. The new 16-inch force main will be installed along Holmes Boulevard and the new 8-inch force main will be installed along 58th Street. This project also includes the upsizing of water main pipes along Holmes Boulevard from 2-inch and 4-inch diameter to 6-inch diameter. Additionally, existing water services within both force main corridors will be replaced to meet current County standards.

The replacement of aging sewer and water infrastructure will improve the resiliency of the City of Holmes Beach sewer and potable water system by reducing the risk of pipe failures and leaks. Additionally, the upsizing of the water mains along Holmes Boulevard will help minimize public impact when future water main upgrades along the intersecting streets of Holmes Boulevard are constructed as part of the Manatee County Capital Improvement Plan.

Current Activities

This project is currently in the design phase.

Bradenton Beach Sewer Rehabilitation

Anticipated Construction Start Date: To Be Determined

This project will replace and relocate a portion of the gravity collection system in South Bradenton Beach to new locations within the public right-of-way. The replacement of aging sewer infrastructure will improve the resiliency of the Bradenton Beach sewer system by increasing capacity and reducing the risk of pipe failures and leaks.

The project includes the installation of approximately one mile of 10-inch and 8-inch gravity main along Gulf Drive South as well as 21 manholes and approximately 100 new 6-inch laterals. Lateral service connections will extend from the gravity main on Gulf Drive South down each side street from 6th Street South to 13th Street South. The project will also require road repair and restoration.

Current Activities

In August 2020, the County completed the on-site survey work for the project design. This sewer rehabilitation project will take place along Gulf Drive South from 6th Street South to 13th Street South in Bradenton Beach. The construction start date is still to be determined.
