On Monday, April 15, 2024, at approximately 1:30PM the water main at  
the intersection of Deltona Boulevard and Normandy Boulevard  
separated in a section of AC pipe that reduces from 10 inches to 8  
inches and was originally installed in 1963. This area is central to 3  
separate water plants, so when the main break occurred, pressure  
remained steadily above 70 PSI washing out a large section, 30 feet in  
diameter, of roadway and lifting 2 lanes of roadway over 4 inches for  
100 Linear Feet. The section of roadway was shut down for safety  
concerns. The water main was isolated, and repairs were made the  
same day. P&S paving was brought in as they are an approved paving  
contractor to assess the roadway for repairs. It was determined that the  
entire intersection along with the 2 lanes of 100 Linear Feet of roadway  
needed structural repairs of roadbase, all lanes needed to be milled  
and resurfaced, new striping, and traffic loops would need to be  
reinstalled as well. P&S Paving provided a quote for approximately 150  
Linear Feet of repairs with the understanding that actual quantities  
would be invoiced. Actual quantities used was 155.71 LF of base and  
180.70 LF of surface asphalt. Once the paving was completed Volusia  
County Traffic Operations was contacted to re-install the traffic loops.  
Traffic loop installation was quoted at $17,460.54.
