Progress Avenue Restoration Project
(July 23, 2020) - The City of Pottsville is pleased to announce that all Federal and State funding is now in place to begin the repairs to the Progress Avenue culvert damaged by unprecedented flooding in August 2018. City officials and administration are working closely with project Engineers to secure the required state permits and property easements that must be executed with adjoining property owners. Concurrently, Alfred E. Benesch & Company, City Engineer, is completing the details of the bid package.
The joint cooperation of FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency) and PEMA (Pennsylvania Emergency Management Agency) has made it possible for the City to advertise and solicit bids for the project in August 2020. Ideally, the bid contract will be awarded in September, provided all necessary safety measures are in place prior to and during the construction phase.
