 ‭(Hidden)‬ Palm Beach County Roadway Project Video

Palm Beach County Roadway Project Video Town of Lake Park and the City of Riviera Beach “Silver Beach Project”

The “Silver Beach Project” in District 7 was nominated for a 2021 People’s Choice Award at the Safe Streets Summit in February 2022. It is an important Palm Beach County roadway project that was completed within the Town of Lake Park and the City of Riviera Beach. Silver Beach Road was widened and reconstructed as a 3-lane roadway from east of Congress Avenue to Old Dixie Highway, and included the addition of a new curb and gutter, inlets, closed drainage system, designated bike lanes, as well as sidewalks on both sides of the street. We retained the existing segment of the road between Avenue S and Avenue P to serve as a frontage road by constructing the new Silver Beach Road farther north and away from the residential properties. The traffic signals and railroad crossing signals at the President Barack Obama/Old Dixie Highway intersection were all replaced and brought up to current standards. Construction began in January 2019 and was completed in May 2021 at a construction cost of $5,582,031.70.

The overall goal of this project was to build a more complete street for an area that was not previously well-connected. The end result provided better connectivity not only for vehicles but also for pedestrians, bicyclists and drainage for the entire area. After the project was completed, the Engineering Department collaborated with PBC’s Channel 20 to create a video highlighting all that went into making this project so special. We truly believe “Silver Beach Project” to be a Complete Streets Champion and we are eager to receive recognition at the Safe Streets Summit. A huge thanks to Public Affairs on helping us with this video.
