Yaima Ballester, P.E. Joins CPWG Team

 St. Pete Beach, FL (December 6, 2018)

Phase 1 of the CPWG designed Pass-A-Grille Way project was completed last month.  The reconstruction of Pass-a-Grille Way is a multiphase project to simultaneously update all utilities along the corridor.  Phase 1, a 5,000+ linear foot project, which stretched from 19th Avenue north to the Don Cesar Hotel, dramatically improves the areas above and below ground infrastructure.

CPWG Engineering’s specialized overhead to underground utility conversion team designed and permitted the project. In addition to the underground utility improvements, above ground improvements included the addition of wider traffic lanes, bike lanes, new curbing and gutters, and new sidewalks with intermittent green spaces. Special features include the use of historic brick pavers at the 21st Avenue intersection crosswalk and vintage-style, LED street lamp fixtures.

This project demonstrates CPWG’s understanding of the intricacies of electrical undergrounding conversion projects. Our team has a wealth of experience gained from designing and supervising these projects. We understand Florida’s unique subsurface conditions, including those in our coastal cities and towns. We have the expertise required for your next utility conversion or refurbishment project.
