DAVIS ISLANDS -- City workers are building a bypass around a massive sewage pipe that was damaged a few weeks ago on Cayuga Avenue. About 1,500 feet of temporary piping is being installed along Channel Drive and Chesapeake Avenue.
Once sewage is re-routed -- in about two weeks -- the city can fully inspect the permanent pipe, determine how extensive the damage is and assess how long it will take to fix, said Ralph Metcalf, director of the city sanitary sewers department.
Public invited to discuss plan for Davis Islands
DAVIS ISLANDS -- A communitywide meeting to discuss a proposed neighborhood plan is set for Thursday.
The plan, in the works since June, is to "protect the island," said Lee Medart, chair of the Davis Islands Neighborhood Planning Task Force.
The plan will help city leaders make decisions that affect roads, parks, homes and businesses.
The meeting begins at 6 p.m. at Davis Island Baptist Church. For more information, contact Shelia Spicola at 251-1690.
Workshop will address Kennedy improvements
KENNEDY BOULEVARD -- A workshop to discuss improvements to one of Tampa's busiest roads is scheduled for Monday.

The meeting begins at 6 p.m. in the Jefferson High School auditorium, 4401 W Cypress St. For more information call Ronnie Blackshear, MPO project manager, at 273-3774, ext. 351.
