The City of Brownsville Engineering and Public Works Department is actively working on improving the streets in the city. The overhaul of Avenida De La Plata in south Brownsville is a significant project.
Pederson Construction has been hired by the EPW department to remove and replace the concrete curb and gutter along Avenida De La Plata, starting from Lincoln Street and extending to the end of the avenue. Additionally, they are installing a sanitary sewer manhole, which suggests an improvement in the sewer infrastructure of the area.
The project is expected to be completed by early 2024.
The cost of this comprehensive improvement project for Avenida De La Plata is $1,287,500.50. This funding is being allocated from the Capital Improvement Project, specifically from the Certificates of Obligation bond funds. These bonds are a common method for municipalities to finance public projects and infrastructure improvements.
The city is investing in its infrastructure and ensuring the ongoing development and maintenance of its roadways and sewer systems. These improvements will contribute to the overall betterment of the community and enhance the quality of life for residents and visitors alike.
