The City of Panama City will hold a Ceremonial Groundbreaking for the Cherry Street Infrastructure Improvement Project on Wednesday, October 5, 2022 at 9 a.m.
The project includes reconstruction of Cherry Street from E. Beach Drive to Bonita Avenue. The major items of work include replacing water and sewer infrastructure, repaving the roadway, installing a sidewalk along the north side of the roadway and bike path along the south side of the roadway, and planting additional trees.
The City Commission awarded a bid for construction of the project to Royal American Construction in the amount of $5,769,671.11. The improvement of underground water and sewer lines and repavement of the roadway will be funded through the State Revolving Fund (SRF) loan. The sidewalk, bike path and other features will be funded through the Bay County Infrastructure Surtax.
Royal American will begin construction at the intersection of Cherry Street and Beach Drive and work east block-by-block. The project is anticipated to take about 300 days.
Those attending the Ceremonial Groundbreaking can park in the Dollar General parking lot, located at 901 Cherry Street.
