[ARCHIVED] Heads Up Boca! New Crosswalks Installed Along Palmetto Park Road

New flashing pedestrian crosswalk sign on Palmetto Park Rd

Our vibrant Downtown is seeing an increase in pedestrian traffic as people walk to and from the beach, to restaurants, shops and parks. Walkers, bikers and drivers will now notice that there are four new pedestrian crosswalks along Palmetto Park Road from Federal Highway to the Intracoastal bridge.

For drivers, that means stopping when the crosswalks are flashing or pedestrians are crossing. For pedestrians, that means using the signal buttons at designated crosswalks only and waiting for cars to slow and stop before crossing. Drivers should expect frequent stops, be aware of pedestrians crossings, and pay attention to flashing yellow signs on the sides of the roadway.

Check out the Heads Up Boca video that highlights some familiar crosswalks around town and some do's and don’ts when crossing the roads.

When driving on East Palmetto Park Road:
