Get the 411 on Projects in Boca Raton: Roads, Bridges, Bike Paths and More

Road Closed sign

September 4, 2019 Update: Our Municipal Services Department has been managing a multitude of projects around town that you have probably noticed on your walks, drives and commutes. Most noticeable may be the road resurfacing projects on some of our more traveled city streets, like St. Andrews Blvd., Palmetto Park Road and NW 2nd Avenue, but there are a number of neighborhoods projects undergoing repaving as well. In addition, we have been busy with sidewalk projects around town, improving continuity and adding accessibility features at street crossings. Speaking of crossings, you may have noticed additional flashing signs and markers in Downtown Boca as we work to improve pedestrian safety and alert drivers to crosswalks. Finally, new parking meters are being installed around town, most noticeably in the Downtown area. The new meters have improved functionality and we are hoping to make it even more convenient with a mobile app coming soon.
