"505" Teen Center and Hobbit Skate Park closure begins April 16
Beginning on April 16, access to the 505 Teen Center / Women’s Club will be impacted while the City of Delray Beach (City) is making improvements to Master Lift Station #1, which transmits wastewater from the City to the South County Regional Wastewater Treatment Plant. Master Lift Station #1 is located adjacent to the basketball courts on the grounds of the 505 Teen Center/Women’s Club, at 430 SE 6th Avenue. The construction area for this project will require that a portion of the parking area of the 505 Teen Center/Women’s Club be utilized for the staging of construction equipment for the duration of the project, which is scheduled to be fully complete in March 2019. The alley between SE 4th Avenue and SE 6th Avenue will also be blocked for the duration of onsite work (see attached diagram). Unfortunately, access to the basketball court will also have to be denied during this time to ensure public safety.
We appreciate your patience while we make these necessary upgrades to our infrastructure and apologize in advance for any inconveniences experienced during construction. As always, City staff will work to minimize any disruptions to local traffic, the community or interruptions to water and sewer services. Should you have any questions or concerns about this project, please contact Missie Barletto, Deputy Director of Programs and Project Management at 561-243-7000. Ext. 4104.
Atlantic Dunes Park Handicap Accessible Parking Lot Closure
Atlantic Dunes Pavilion, which was destroyed by arson, is a popular landmark of the local community. To maintain its original design, the pavilion will be replaced exactly as it was in appearance. The difference lies in the additional structural improvements that will allow the pavilion to withstand category 5 hurricane winds. This includes sinking pilings into the sand and additional bracing on the roof structure.
The total cost of the project is $320,000 and the City expects construction to be complete by the end of May 2018.
Beach-goers can still find additional accessible parking across South Ocean Boulevard in the surface parking lot. A newly installed beach access mat is available behind the main beach pavilion on Atlantic Avenue and A1A.
