PM Construction Company is approximately 75% completed with the work on Jade Avenue, which extends from 63rd Street to State Highway 365, and covers Phase I of this repair project. The manholes have been placed and about 2600 linear feet of pipe has been burst. The scheduled completion date of this repair project is May 2, 2019; however, Utilities Administrative staff estimate that the project will be completed significantly sooner than anticipated. Please be aware that the traffic may occasionally be down to one lane with flagmen to direct traffic. School officials with the Port Arthur Independent School District will continue to work with buses and parents picking up their children from Port Acres Elementary School to help re-route transport, when necessary. If you have any questions, please feel free to call our Utility Operations Department at 409-983-8151.
