Siesta Seen update from Shay by the time I was wrapping up this column on May 28.) Shay likes the new bins. Among the ques- tions he has emailed Tatge, he said, is a query about whether the county plans to replace all the separate garbage and recycling bins at the beach accesses with these structures. He also asked about their volume compared to the current bins at most of the accesses. ALL DONE ON THE BRIDGE Some confusion initially was raised about recent Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) bridge maintenance on the key. Apparently, people thought the north bridge was the focus, but the crews actually were working at night on the Stickney Point Road bridge. Lane closures did occur while repairs were under way to the bridge deck, concrete and machinery room, according to an FDOT memo provided to the county. That work was completed last week, county staff confirmed. STORMWATER PROJECT UPDATE The latest news on the Siesta stormwater project — officially, the Beach Road Drainage Project — is that the modular pump house has been installed and wiring for the build- ing, the pump and associated equipment was completed on May 20. In a report to the County Commission dated the same day, Isaac Brownman, director of the Public Works Department, wrote that Erickson Engineering, a county consultant on the project, conducted the first underwa- ter inspection of the offshore diffuser on May 5 and found "all was satisfactory." The diffusing is the final part of the process before treated stormwater can be pumped into the Gulf of Mexico. A test of the ultraviolet equipment that will be used to treat the stormwater was set for May 28, Brownman added. "Substantial completion for the Beach Road Drainage Project is still scheduled for May 30, 2014," he added. % Search for text in stories by clicking the icon in the menubar and entering a search term.
