Delray Beach Master Plan Week of August 7, 2017
The construction of the new sidewalks continue north of the flag pole area to Thomas Street. The Contractor will begin establishing the new work zone between Thomas Street north to Beach Road this week. Therefore benches, plaques, memorials, trash receptacles, and street signs will be collected and properly stored by the City of Delray Beach beginning on Monday, August 7.
On street parking north of the Marriott Hotel to Beach Road will not be permitted.
It is very important that folks accessing the Beach only use the identified access points, which provide safe entry. These safe entry points are currently located by the Sandoway Parking Lot, the main Pavilion, and the Thomas Street designated crosswalk.
New parking meters are installed along the beachfront at the southern end of the municipal beach from Casuarina Road going north to Boston’s On the Beach. While visitors have enjoyed free parking in this area for a few weeks, please note that the meters may be operational in the near future for parallel parking in this area.

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. If you have any questions concerning the use of the smart meters when parallel parking please contact Jorge Alarcon at the City of Delray Beach, (561) 243-7000, ext. 4112.
- Demolition, underground piping, and backfilling for the new showers and fountains between the Marriott Hotel and Thomas Street continue.
- The pouring of all three concrete colors for the sidewalk continues.
- Installation of the new trash receptacles, bike racks, Oolite blocks, and benches will begin next week.
- Forms for the new knee wall are being installed and encapsulation of the knee-wall is expected to begin next week.
Parking has been restored on the southern end of the municipal beach from Casuarina Road to the beginning of the current work zone at Boston’s. While these spots have been free for the past couple of weeks, smart meters have now been installed and will be operational in the next week. Parking on A1A adjacent to the municipal beach is $1.50 per hour and, in this area, cars are limited to a four-hour stay.
As construction continues on the Promenade, certain on-street parking spaces along the beach will remain unavailable. However, we will continue to make every effort to make parking alternatives accessible whenever possible. Parking in all public parking lots along the beach, including the Sandoway Parking 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.
Bicyclists will be able to use the bicycle lane, but we urge extra caution in this area. The bicycle lane on South Ocean Boulevard will be narrowed with barriers to protect the general public from the construction activities.
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.
