  • Seminole Heights wall mural


Construction began in late 2021 and will be completed approximately three years later. Crews are working in multiple locations simultaneously. Construction will occur in all three Seminole Heights neighborhoods: South Seminole Heights, Old Seminole Heights and Southeast Seminole Heights.

The dates listed below are tentative as of Dec. 1, 2022, and subject to weather and unforeseen conditions.

Outfall Structure and River Area

  • The City requested ADA accessibility to the top of the outfall structure and to the park bench, which will require additional sidewalk. The safety handrail will line three sides of the structure, which will be painted beige. In addition to the pink mully grass, the City requested four bald cypress trees be added to the landscape plan.
  • Nelson is awaiting final approval of pricing from the City on all outfall improvements. Upon approval, all materials will be ordered, some of which have a 16-week lead time. Estimated full restoration for the park is April 2023.

Crest 300 block

  • Nelson is awaiting a tree permit for a dead tree at 315 W Crest, after which the tree will be removed by Nelson’s arborist.
  • Nelson is working with the City for proper approvals to remove a tree at 318 W Crest.
  • Crews are currently installing pavers and restoring property at 314 and 328 W Crest.

 Crest 100 and 200 blocks

  • Crews are continuing to make adjustments to the sanitary sewer, after which the line will be inspected.
  • All homes are now connected to new water service.
  • Crews will begin building the road base Dec. 5 at Highland Avenue and work east, with the goal of installing the first layer of asphalt before Christmas.

 Florida Avenue

  • Crews will install the final storm pipe on Florida Avenue Dec. 6, 7 and 8. This work will occur between 8 p.m. and 5 a.m. nightly and require a full road closure and detour with police presence.

Frierson Avenue

  • Watermain installation is ongoing and should be completed by Jan. 1, with homes being connected by Feb. 1.
  • Stormwater work is ongoing and expected to be complete by mid-February. The 72-inch storm pipe will be completely installed before Christmas. However, the storm inlets on the north side of the street cannot be installed until the new watermain is completely installed and tied over, as the existing watermain is in the way of the new storm pipe.

Louisiana, New Orleans and Ellicott

  • The first layer of asphalt should be placed on these roads the week of Dec. 5.

 Caracas West of I-275 

  • Installation of the 72-inch stormwater pipe is complete. Pending the review of an additional survey, Nelson will start building the road, with the goal to have the first layer of asphalt installed before Christmas.

Central Avenue

  • Crews are scheduled to install the first layer of asphalt on the northbound lane (east side) of Central Avenue between Hillsborough and Louisiana the week of Dec. 5. Permeable pavers will be installed along the east side of the street the week of Dec. 12. Traffic will remain southbound only, pending resolution of traffic and mobility logistics.
  • Crews expect to begin box culvert work on Central at Comanche in January 2023. Work on Central north of Hillsborough is expected to take 13 months.

Henry and Cherokee

  • Watermains are fully installed and connected to homes on these streets.
  • The first layer of asphalt should be placed on these roads by mid-January.
  • Permeable pavers for Cherokee should also be installed by the end of January.


  • Work is anticipated to begin on Hanna in front of Seminole Elementary in mid-March.

Miami and Osceola

  • Crews will begin building the road the week of Dec. 5, with the first layer of asphalt the following week, pending asphalt availability.

Caracas & Taliaferro East of I-275

  • Crews are currently installing 72-inch stormwater pipe on Caracas, beginning at Taliaferro and moving eastward toward Nebraska Avenue. Installation will run through mid-January.
  • Work on Caracas east of Nebraska Avenue will likely begin after March 1.

Nebraska Avenue

  • During one night in December (date to be determined), crews will perform exploratory work on an existing watermain. This work will be performed at night with a double lane closure and flaggers for one-way traffic.
  • Crews will begin installing a new 20-inch watermain on Nebraska Avenue between the two Caracas intersections after the first of the year. This work will require a full road closure and detour for approximately six weeks.

Construction typically occurs on weekdays from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Night and weekend work may be needed on occasion for major road crossings or connections. If night or weekend work is required, crews will provide advance notification to residents to minimize inconvenience.
