Delray Beach Master Plan Week of May 22, 2017

BAMP1Construction continues at the south end of the beach between Casuarina Road and the Sandoway Parking Lot. Folks will notice that the sidewalk remains closed with temporary construction fencing. We are continuing to ask people to be careful when accessing the beach.  The general contractor completed the removal of the old sidewalk, so it is very important that folks trying to get to the beach only use the identified access points, which provide safe entry. These safe entry points are located at Casuarina Road and at the Sandoway Parking Lot.

Utility trenching and conduit is nearly completed for the future electric, plumbing, and irrigation.

Backfilling and compaction of the utility trench has begun at the south end of the project. Water is being placed on the backfill material to reduce the dust in the work area.

Bicyclists will be able to use the bicycle lane, but we urge extra caution in this area.  The bicycle lane on Ocean Boulevard will be narrowed with barriers to protect the general public from the construction activities.

Due to limited parking at the Beach, a third Downtown Roundabout trolley between the parking garages and the Beach is accessible.  Click here to view a map of the new route.

Beach Promenade benches, plaques and stone memorials have been removed and safely stored. Any donor of the same should contact Isaac Kovner at 561-243-7000, ext. 4119, to discuss options for future location.

 




Upcoming Activities:
 

  • Beginning Monday 22, 2017 the contractor will begin moving to the next phase of the construction project to begin demolition of more of the existing sidewalk. The new construction zone will be from the Sandoway Parking Lot extending north to Boston’s Sand Bar. Construction fencing will be installed and on-street parking will not be permitted in the new work zone.  In addition; parking meters, benches, plaques, stone memorials, trash receptacles, and signage will be removed from the new construction zone.
  • The Sandoway Parking Lot shall remain open to the public allowing for safe access to the beach as well as the beach access point by Boston’s Sand Bar.
  • Underground piping for the new showers and fountains will be completed at the south end of the beach (between Casuarina Road and the Sandoway Parking Lot.
  • Backfilling and compaction of the trench for the underground piping should be completed by the end of next week.
  • Forms for the new sidewalk will be installed this week.
  • The pouring of concrete for the new sidewalk will begin this week.

 Parking:

As construction continues on the Promenade, certain on-street parking spaces along the beach will remain unavailable. However, we will make every effort to make parking alternatives accessible whenever possible. Parking in all public parking lots along the beach, including the Sandoway Lot, will continue to be available. For those who choose to park in public parking garages, a third trolley has been added with a new route featuring stops at the parking garages and additional stops along the beach to accommodate beach-goers.

Bicycle lanes:

Bicyclists will be able to use the bicycle lane, but we urge extra caution in this area.  The bicycle lane on Ocean Boulevard will be narrowed with barriers to protect the general public from the construction activities. 

Worksite Safety:

The contractor has secured the Beach Promenade area on the north end of the Beach to create two safe zones - one for protected sidewalk and beach access for the public and one for protection of the construction site. Directional and informational signage is present. A safe zone for construction also is established on the south end of the Beach. Utility structures, irrigation, electrical and existing trees are protected from construction activities.

Public notifications concerning sidewalk closures are posted. The contractor is working with the public on providing safe entry to the beach through designated areas within the construction zone.
