Current and Upcoming Road Projects
Palmetto Park Road Shared Pathway Improvements Project
from State Road 7 to NW 2nd Avenue
This 6.279-mile improvements project includes widening the existing shared-use path & installing new curb ramps to meet current ADA standards, improving pedestrian and bicyclist access to mass transit options along Palmetto Park Road, minor roadway resurfacing at various side streets, and widening the westbound turn lane at Cardinal Avenue’s entrance to the Boca Raton Museum of Art School. During this project, work will take place on the south side of the roadway, parallel to the eastbound lanes, from State Road 7 to NW 12th Avenue, and on both sides of the roadway from NW 12th Avenue to NW 2nd Avenue. The work is being performed by General Asphalt Co., with American Engineering Group providing project oversight in conjunction with FDOT.
Work will consist of removing the existing sidewalk and placing concrete for the new 5-foot sidewalk and ADA ramps. The contractor is expected to remain in this location through October 2018, weather permitting and pending any unforeseen issues. The Palm Tran bus stop, located at SW 9th Avenue, will be unavailable for one day during this work; however, the SW 7th Avenue bus stop will remain open.
The sidewalk at driveways will be replaced in half sections, so access is maintained at all times. Pedestrians will be detoured to the existing sidewalk on the westbound/north side of Palmetto Park Road, between SW 9th Avenue and 4th Avenue until the work is completed. The work should occur within the existing Right-of-Way immediately next to the sidewalk without impacting traffic daily. However, the outside eastbound lane may be closed as needed.

Camino Real Intracoastal Waterway Bridge
The Camino Real Intracoastal Waterway Bridge project, overseen by Palm Beach County Roads & Bridges, will result in a complete renovation of the existing Camino Real bridge. The renovation will require the complete closure of the Camino Real bridge to vehicles and pedestrians. The bridge was originally scheduled to be open to traffic on or before April 12, 2019, but in October 2018, additional work, which was not detectable prior to beginning construction, was identified as being in need of repairs. The additional work may extend the bridge closure by 12 weeks, putting the opening in the summer of 2019.
Spanish River Boulevard Intracoastal Waterway Bridge Painting Project
The Spanish River Intracoastal Waterway Bridge Painting Project, overseen by the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT), will result in routine maintenance and improvements for the Eastbound SR 800/ Spanish River Blvd.bridge and the Westbound SR 800/Spanish River Blvd. bridge. Improvements include: sandblast existing paint and repaint the steel bridge structure, repair and rehabilitate the bridge span locks, and replace the bridge piling jackets.
Work will be done in phases to reduce the effects of construction to the community. Temporary lane closures during non-peak hours will have minimal effects on traffic. Lane closures may occur daily and nightly, Monday through Sunday, with the following exceptions: - Westbound lane closures are not permitted 7am - 9am - Eastbound lane closures are not permitted 2:30pm - 7pm.
Full bridge closures are permitted for a total of 4 (four) weekends at any point during the project duration
- Full closures may begin at 5 a.m. Saturday ending by 5 a.m. the following Monday
- Notice to the public will be provided in advance of any full closure and advertised on lighted message boards
- Northbound motorists may detour via Linton Boulevard
- Southbound motorists may detour via Palmetto Park Road
