What does this project consist of?
This project includes the design to reestablish the service life for all of the public infrastructure for the locations included in this project scope including sections of SW 4th Street, SW 6th Street, SW 7th Avenue, and SW 3rd Court. The project includes improvements to the public roadways, alleyways, potable water along with sanitary and storm sewer systems. The project will also include considerations for sidewalk, landscaping, and street lighting improvements to improve the area’s bike and pedestrian mobility and safety.
Will this affect access for essential services?
The Contractor will maintain all School Bus Stops, Mail Deliveries, Solid Waste Pickup, and Access for Emergency Services throughout the duration of the project. The Contractor’s Superintendent will immediately reach out to the necessary Police and Fire Rescue, as well as the other above agencies as part of their mobilization activities to begin the project.
Will this affect access to my property?
The City’s Contractor is required to provide access to your Property or Business throughout the duration of the project. If there are any special circumstances involving work activity that would limit access, the Property Owner will receive advance notice. No total road closures will be allowed.
Will any trees be removed?
It is the City’s intent to utilize the full extent of the public right-of-way to accommodate the roadway improvements. Any existing trees, landscaping, fencing, etc. in the public right-of-way in conflict with the proposed improvements will need to be relocated by the homeowner prior to construction or these improvements will be removed by the Contractor during construction. Please remove any items you wish to keep prior to the construction start date.
Will the area be restored?
The Contractor is responsible to restore in-kind all areas damaged or disturbed during construction including roadway, driveways, sidewalks and landscaped areas. Final restoration will be completed as the last stage of construction. A high definition preconstruction video has been completed to document the existing conditions along the project site before the Contractor begins work.
How will this project be funded?
The design and construction of this project is a planned partnership between the City of Delray Beach and the Delray Beach Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA). No new taxes or fees will be levied or charged to complete this work.
