Current and Upcoming Road & Municipal Projects
iSIP - SW 12th Avenue Upgrades
As part of the City of Boca Raton’s Innovative Sustainable Infrastructure Program (iSIP) in the Boca Square neighborhood, there will be infrastructure upgrades installed along SW 12th Avenue from Camino Real to Palmetto Park Road.
The goal of this project is to have the major upgrades completed by the time Addison Mizner Elementary School opens for students in August 2021.
Visit the project webpage for more details.
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.
The northern part of the bridge will be demolished first and the existing eastbound lanes will be reduced to one-lane in each direction. The southern part of the bridge will be demolished later with the traveling lanes moving to the westbound lanes. At all times one lane in each direction will be open to traffic. Access to adjacent property will be allowed throughout the project. The school flashing beacon will operate during construction as well.
Parks & Recreation Projects
Sand Pine Park
Sand Pine Park is scheduled to close on September 20, 2021 until the early Spring/Summer of 2022. Work on the park will include the following facility upgrades:

- New sports lighting
- New sport court surfacing

The fixtures are also more aesthetically pleasing and complement surrounding architecture.
- Installation of 1,400 new fixtures started in the summer of 2021
- 700 of the fixtures are in the Downtown Boca/CRA district
- Nearly 400 fixtures have already been installed
- Remaining fixtures scheduled to be completed by early spring 2022
