N. Atlantic Boulevard Sewer Main Improvements

Sewer improvements on N. Atlantic Blvd from Hellman to Garvey, and on Garvey Ave from Atlantic to Ynez will be constructed late spring through summer. Construction is scheduled to continue through Fall 2022.

Sewer improvements are planned to include replacement of sewer mains, primarily along N Atlantic Blvd and Garvey Ave. to increase future sewer needs along the corridor.  The final design includes 2,100 feet of new 12-inch sewer main on Atlantic and 1,600 feet of 16 &18-inch sewer main along Garvey Ave. Location Map
