The Dean Park / Second Street Drainage Improvements project for the City of Fort Myers is a 1.2 million dollar infrastructure replacement project located on Second Street between Evans Ave and Seaboard. This section of roadway is part of State Route 80 and therefore and FDOT roadway. All FDOT standards and specifications applied to the Construction. The scope of this project included the removal and replacement of an aging and undersized storm drain system with a new, large system. In addition, this section of roadway was rebuilt to current FDOT standards. Incidental work was also completed to include the installation of new curb and gutter, new sidewalks meeting all current ADA and PROWAG standards, and restoration. Second Street between Evans Ave and Seaboard is a highly traveled 2-Lane, one way section of roadway within the City of Fort Myers and a part of State Route 80.
I have recently had the opportunity to work with Chris-Tel Construction for the construction of Dean Park Second Street Drainage Improvements project for the City of Fort Myers where Chris-Tel served as the CM at Risk. Chris-Tel Construction was able to accommodate our needs and fluidly coordinate with the City of Fort Myers, the design team and the subcontractors to complete this project. There were many challenges to this project such as schedule, unforeseen conditions, and an aging existing infrastructure to overcome and were handled and executed perfectly by Chris-Tel Construction’s management team.
I recommend Chris-Tel Construction for horizontal construction projects. I express my utmost confidence in their capabilities to deliver quality construction management within budget and under the time confines.
