South Boca Raton Beach Renourishment Update

The dredge vessel has excavated enough sand to fill areas from the South Inlet Park to the Placide condominium. The sand placement within the City limits is anticipated to be completed by April 7. Daily turtle monitoring is ongoing, and no nests have been found within the project limits.

The dredge vessel will remain at the Boca Raton Inlet where sand will be excavated and placed south of the City limits on Deerfield Beach and the Town of Hillsboro. Pipes laying on the sand will remain in place until the sand placement is completed in Broward County.

FDOT Glades Road DDI Update

The Glades Road DDI at I-95 opened in final configuration on Monday morning, April 3 – almost a month ahead of the original projected completion date of May 1. The final configuration features 4 westbound lanes and 4 eastbound lanes, including a dedicated and dual/through turn lane to the I-95 northbound entrance ramp.

Please be aware that daily off-peak lane closures within the DDI area may still be required to finalize grading, sod placement, pond excavation, pull box adjustments, and drainage within the pond areas. For more information, visit the City's website.
