Parks & Recreation Projects
Hidden Lakes Park Pavilion
Starting Monday, April 19, 2021, work will begin replacing the pavilion at Hidden Lakes Park, located at NW 4th Ave and Country Club Blvd. The work should take approximately five weeks.
The existing pavilions and slab will be demolished and replaced with a new pavilion and slab. The work area will be fenced off and will not affect the usage of the tennis courts, parking lot or playground.
Spanish River Park Restroom Renovations
Renovations will begin on Spanish River Park Restrooms #3 and #4 this week. There is a temporary restroom trailer on-site and will remain during the construction. Restroom #3 is being demolished and rebuilt to provide triple the existing capacity for the park. Restroom #4 is being renovated and expanded. The work is expected to be finished this summer.
The park is undergoing sewer improvements which began on April 19 and should take 4-5 weeks. During this time, all park amenities will be operational, with a few exceptions when making the final connections to the restroom building and crossing sidewalks.

Rectangular Rapid Flashing Beacon Crosswalks
Beginning mid-November 2020, NEW Rectangular Rapid Flashing Beacon (RRFB) Crosswalks are being installed in four locations on Palmetto Park Rd. between Federal Hwy. and NE 5th Ave. These new RRFBs are being installed to enhance pedestrian safety at key crosswalks for the purposes of improving downtown walkability.
The RRFBs draw attention to approaching vehicles as vehicles as pedestrians look to cross the street. Crews are in the process of completing the installations.
I-95 Express Lanes
The purpose of the 95 Express Lanes is to improve mobility, relieve congestion, provide additional travel options, enhance transit services, accommodate future growth and development in the region, enhance emergency evacuation, and improve system connectivity between key limited access facilities in South Florida. Parts of this project affecting the Boca Raton area are:
- 3B-1 SW 10th St to south of Glades Rd
- 3B-2 Glades Rd to Linton Blvd
- SR-808/Glades Road Interchange to a Diverging Diamond Interchange (DDI)
- Clint Moore Road bridge at I-95
Palmetto Park Road El Rio Canal Bridge
The Palmetto Park Road El Rio Canal Bridge Project, overseen by Palm Beach County Roads and Bridge, will result in a widening of the existing Palmetto Park Road El Rio Canal Bridge. Two lanes of the bridge will remain open during the construction period, which is estimated to last approximately 15 months.
Palm Beach County Roads and Bridge is extending the eight foot (8’) shared use pathway from the end of the FDOT project (where the pathway currently terminates on the north side of Palmetto Park Road), throughout the bridge upgrade, to the western limit of Palmetto Dunes Park.
Palmetto Park Road Intracoastal Waterway Bridge
The Palmetto Park Road Intracoastal Waterway Bridge Project, overseen by Palm Beach County Roads and Bridges, will result in routine maintenance for the existing Palmetto Park Road Intracoastal Waterway Bridge. The maintenance will require closures at the Palmetto Park Road Bridge to vehicles and pedestrians. The construction schedule has not yet been established.
