Repairs to sewer on 3rd Street set to begin


PALATKA  — Contractors for the City of Palatka Public Works Department is scheduled to begin repairs to the sanitary sewer system beneath 3rd Street at the intersection of Main Street starting on Weds, Nov.  29, 2023.

This project is part of the ongoing effort to replace the aging infrastructure in the City.

Although not apparent from the surface, the subterranean infrastructure at the intersection is one of the highest-volume sewer mains in the city. Due to the age of the sewer main, the intersection has developed a depression in the road.  This project will address this and ensure the continued functionality and safety of the sewer infrastructure in the neighborhood.

Due to the depth of the sewer pipes and the extent of the work required, the intersection at 3rd and Main will be temporarily closed to traffic. A substantial excavation will be carried out to facilitate the repairs.

Although there may be slight delays, access to businesses on 3rd to Main Streets will be available from Reid Street during the project.

The project is expected to be completed within 35 days, subject to favorable weather conditions and site circumstances. 

For further information or project updates, please contact the Palatka Public Works Department at (328) 329-0107.

The Palatka Public Works Department appreciates the community's understanding and cooperation during this necessary infrastructure improvement project. Your safety and the reliability of essential services remain our top priorities.


Thank You for your understanding,
