Starting Monday morning Dec. 14 thru Wednesday, Dec. 16, the San Carlos Pumping Station will be on 100 percent bypass pumping so final connections can be made to the 48-inch raw sewage force main piping. Garney crews will be working until 8:00 p.m. each night to ensure we can complete the scheduled work during this time frame. Bypass pumps will be running 24-hours-per-day, and temporary lighting will be on, so crews can continue working after dark. Residents may notice some odors during this period as manholes will be open and piping will be cut to make final connections. All work scheduled for this time frame will be completed and southbound Manhattan will be opened up by 5:00 p.m. Friday, Dec. 18.
Temporary Lane Closure and Holiday Schedule
South Manhattan Ave. Temporary Lane Closure and Bypass Pumping – Dec. 7-18, 2020
The southbound lane of South Manhattan Avenue will be closed from West San Carlos Street to Henderson Boulevard from Monday, Dec. 7 through Friday, Dec. 18, 2020. The northbound lane will remain open. The closure is necessary to perform a line stop so crews can replace the remaining pumps and pipeline at the San Carlos Pumping Station. Bypass pumping will occur for two days during normal business hours while the closure is in effect. Local traffic will be detoured to West San Miguel and South Hesperides streets.
To ensure an enjoyable holiday season for your families and ours, the Garney team will not be working on Christmas (Dec. 24 and 25), and New Year’s Day (Jan. 1, 2021).
We wish you all good health and a joyous holiday season. And as always, thank you for your continued patience as we improve the San Carlos Pumping Station. For more information, call (813) 486-0361.
