LAP reconstruction of approximately 0.5 mile of a four-lane divided urban arterial in unincorporated Boca Raton in Palm Beach County.
The proposed safety improvements consist of reconstruction of Lyons Road to flatten existing horizontal curves and provide superelevation to meet the posted speed of 40 mph, modify lane and median widths to incorporate bicycle lanes, add and improve drainage features to solve significant flooding, new sidewalk construction, ADA upgrades, signing and pavement marking. Project improvements constructed with tight R/W constraints. Project incorporated right turn lane and water line modifications for Palm Beach County, significant number of utilities, trench drain system needed to be contained within the median, permitting through Lake Worth Drainage District and several public meetings were required as outreach to stakeholders and very involved residents.
