US-1 Resurfacing Project Updates
Our progress this week:
- Installation of traffic detection loops was completed.
Planned work for the next week:
- Pavement marking changes and begin permanent pavement markings
Major items impacting the public:
- Work will be occurring nightly, Sunday night through Friday morning, between 8 PM and 7 AM, and will require one additional lane closure. One travel lane will remain open in each direction at all times.
- There have been concerns from several business owners along the corridor regarding the bike lane buffer striping at commercial driveways. A plan revision has been prepared, and changes to the striping at driveways will be made in the next couple of weeks.
Lane closure information from the weekly press release:
- US 1 Resurfacing, from south of Beach Road to north of County Line Road
This 1.4-mile lane reduction and resurfacing project began Monday, Nov. 6, 2017, in the Village of Tequesta. Work includes permanently eliminating the outside northbound and southbound lanes leaving two lanes in each direction, widening turn lanes, adding buffered bike lanes and patterned pavement crosswalks, milling and resurfacing the roadway, widening and replacing sidewalks, drainage and lighting improvements, pedestrian and mast arm signalization, vehicle detection systems, signage, and pavement marking upgrades. The work is being performed by J.W. Cheatham, LLC, and is expected to be completed fall 2018. The estimated construction cost is $3.2 million. (Fin. 428718-1-52-01, 02, 03, 04 & 05)
