November 12, 2020 –  The 274 Construction Group has been in town taking grade shots for the incoming sewer lines at intersections for manhole manufacturing for the Howe St. sewer project. The first set of manholes are expected to be delivered next week and the pipe should soon follow. I do not have a set date as to when digging will begin, but asphalt cuts are slated to start taking place next week. As are traffic control devices. Construction will begin at the Bay St. & S. Howe St. intersection.

September 9, 2020 – Beginning mid Sept. 2020 thru June 2021 (approx.), the City of Southport will be replacing the outdated 1913 sewer system on Howe St. This project will consist of digging up and replacing all sewer lines and any sewer services from the intersection of S. Howe & Bay St. to N. Howe St. and Stuart Ave.

During this time delays will be expected, and traffic flow will be rerouted around the blocks that the construction will be taking place. Sidewalks and foot traffic will be minimally affected during construction.

We apologize for the inconvenience and possible impact to your property or business. Your patience will be greatly appreciated as we work to improve the city’s infrastructure.
