Work Beginning On Magnolia Lake Drainage Project

August 31, 2015

Escambia County’s Engineering Division is beginning work  on a draining improvement project in the Magnolia Lake Estates/Fall Tree Drive area off Kingsfield Road.

The project will upgrade and and repair storm water facilities damaged during the April 2014 flooding event.  The project will first be focused in the cul-de-sac area of Fallen Tree Drive, with the second phase to soon follow.

The project is funded by the Federal  Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) at a project construction cost of $70,000.

Construction is estimated to take place during the hours of 7 a.m. and 5:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, with an occasional Saturday necessary to complete remaining work.

All construction will take place within the  existing road right-of-way, pond and easements.  Roadways may be blocked briefly during  construction, but residents will be provided access to their property at all times may be blocked, as construction progresses.
