Traffic delays expected in HBTS during repairs to damaged utility plant

Posted on February 26, 2019 by Staff reports

Work has started towards the demolition and replacement of a 1.0 MGD (million gallon per day) clarifier at the Holley-Navarre Wastewater Treatment Facility (WWTF) located near Pepper Drive in Navarre.

The work will require removal of the existing clarifier and construction of a new identical cast-in-place concrete clarifier.

According to HNWS, during last two weeks North Florida Construction, project contractor, has been mobilizing equipment onto the site and beginning some preliminary work. The project is expected to last approximately 180 days with a final completion date of August 10, 2019.

Officials say that during the project noise and truck traffic are expected in the areas surrounding the site near Pepper Drive and Coral Street.

Additionally, there will be intermittent traffic delays for heavy equipment and material delivery in the vicinity of Fenwick Street, Moray Drive, Frankfort Street, Pepper Drive, and Coral Street.

An exhibit depicting the truck routes is available on the utility’s website at

When the project is completed the plant will be returned to full capacity for operation. Additionally, temporary access roads will be returned to pre-existing conditions.
