City of Cape Coral force main transmission line update

Expect lane closures, delays along SE 47th Terrace through the beginning of February

By Staff | Jan 23, 2023

Starting Monday, Jan. 23 and continuing through early February, motorists along SE 47th Terrace can expect delays and occasional lane closures during normal business hours while work continues. One lane will be open during construction and there will be flaggers allowing traffic to travel east and west along the corridor. The contractor will be finishing the work at the intersection of SE 47th Terrace and SE 6th Avenue on Monday and they will begin going west from SE 6th Avenue towards SE 4th Place.

As part of the Community Redevelopment Agency’s infrastructure improvements in south Cape Coral, the city began installing force main (wastewater) transmission pipelines in late 2022 to strengthen the current force main infrastructure. The entire project encompasses four phases and will continue through fall of 2023.

Intermittent road closures or lane closures can be expected Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. during this project. After-hours work is not anticipated, however if unexpected road closures, Saturday or evening work is needed, the city of Cape Coral’s Utilities Department will make that determination and notify the community.
