Pavement of Sandpiper Street is underway
The San Pedro Town Council’s (SPTC) street rehabilitation efforts continue with the cementing of Sandpiper Street. Work on the street commenced on Friday, October 23rd and is expected to be completed by Tuesday, November 3rd in preparation for the 2015 General Elections. Sandpiper Street is located just right of the roundabout connecting Pescador Drive to Boca del Rio Drive. Due to its proximity to both the San Pedro High School and the beach area, Sandpiper Street is a heavily trafficked area, and as such the upgrade of the street will facilitate traffic. Guerrero further explained that once construction on Sandpiper Street is complete, work will commence on beach reclamation efforts. “Beach erosion is a serious problem that we are facing in the stretch of beach from Wet Willy’s Dock to Boca del Rio Park. We already have plans that will be put into place to reclaim that beach area and make it a better beach for residents and visitors,” said Guerrero. As part of the reclamation efforts, SPTC will be installing a 24” underground pipe the length of the beach which will be connected to the drainage system of each house to reduce water runoff on the beach. SPTC will also be constructing a retaining wall along the coast in hopes of lessening erosion effects.
