PUNTA GORDA, Fla.-- Beginning Tuesday, March 15, 2011, the Utilities Department Wastewater Collection Division will begin replacing 200 feet of gravity sewer main on Magdalina Drive between West End Drive and Via Tripoli Blvd.

This work will require the closure of the road to through traffic on Magdalina Drive between West End Drive and Via Tripoli. Residents in the affected area will have access through the road with a chance of minimal delays.

When driving in the area, motorists are encouraged to drive with extreme caution, obey all signage and flagmen, and be alert for workers in the area.

A rough roadway restoration will be done on Magdalina Drive each day in order for residents to gain access to their homes. Upon project completion, the street will be restored.

The anticipated completion date for the utilities portion of this project is March 18, 2011.
