In August 2020, Coastal Concrete Products LLC d/b/a Coastal Site Development (Coastal Concrete) was awarded the contract as a “Section 3 Business” to complete the sidewalk project. Construction required the installation of stormwater boxes, drainage pipes, concrete sidewalks and sod on the east side of S. 5th Street from Carver Street north to West Delaware Avenue and along Carver Street from the west end of Carver Street moving east to First Street on the north and south sides of Carver Street as well as the headwall improvements at SW corner of Carver Street and South 1st Street.
The final completion date was April 7, 2021. The outcome of the project is that an estimated 1,150 individuals will benefit from the sidewalk improvements pursuant to Block Group 1, Tract 112.04 of the US Census data.
This project is part of a sidewalk implementation program in Immokalee, which will provide many benefits including safety, mobility, and healthier communities. The sidewalks will make the community more attractive to potential businesses to come to the community, thus will increase job opportunities.
Total project cost was $744,590.99
A potential future project may be an asphalt paving overlay project on Carver Street
