Sanford begins flood relief project along Mellonville Avenue

SANFORD — The city of Sanford is working to address drainage issues in part of the city as part of a $2 million project dubbed the Mellonville Avenue Drainage Improvement Project.

The city of Sanford is currently building a new pond to relieve flooding in the area of Mellonville Avenue near 20th Street

Residents say they were taken a bit by surprise by the project, though a city spokesperson says flyers were sent out two weeks ago and social media posts were made

The project is set to be completed sometime next spring
