upgrades to the water and sewer infrastructure.
Lanzo Construction is working with the Miami-Dade Water and Sewer Department (WASD) to provide upgrades to the water and sewer infrastructure in the Shenandoah Neighborhood. The scope of work for this project includes upgrading to new 8-inch water lines from 2-inch water lines, moving backyard water meters to the front of the property and installing fire hydrants. In addition, Lanzo will also be removing and replacing gravity sewer mains and laterals for a portion of the neighborhood. Upgrading the sewer system will entail installing or rehabbing gravity sewer pipes for mains and laterals, connecting residents to the new system. New sewer lines are not needed for the entire community and it is expected that the sewer upgrades will overlap with the water line work. The project is designed in phases and is expected to be completed by December 2017. At the conclusion of the water and sewer project, the roadway areas impacted by the construction will be repaved and in better condition than their original state.
Shenandoah System Betterment Project Update
The Miami-Dade Water and Sewer Department (WASD) has embarked on a Capital Improvement Program to provide necessary upgrades to the water and sewer infrastructure to continue providing high quality services, protecting public health, and the environment. One of these projects has been the installation of new 8-inch water lines, new water services, service conversions of backyard mains and fire hydrants in the Shenandoah neighborhood. In addition, WASD is proposing new sewer lines for a portion of the area and is taking measures to award the work. New sewer lines are not needed for the entire community and it is expected that the sewer upgrades will overlap with the water line work.
The water line project is designed in two phases and is expected to be completed by December 2017.
Phase A by Ric-Man Construction is along SW 17 to 27 Avenue from SW 8 to 16 Street.
Phase B by Lanzo Construction is along SW 17 to 17 Avenue from SW 8 to Coral Way (SW 22 St).
Construction work is occurring during the daytime hours of 8 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., Monday to Friday and Saturdays, when needed.
At the conclusion of the water and sewer project, the roadway areas impacted by the construction will be in better condition than their original state. We thank you for your continued support.
