BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — Workers from All County Paving (1180 SW 10th Street, Delray Beach) inexplicably blocked entrances and roadways in Shadowood Square Saturday morning creating traffic havoc and — at one point — even telling those in wheelchairs to “just walk.”

Supervisor Adam Paris — shown — was too busy smoking to speak with BocaNewsNow.com, or to manage his “crew” which aggressively engaged customers and drivers in the area.

Shadowood Square is home to Gymnastics Plus where grandparents — many infirm — often watch young children in gymnastics classes on weekend mornings. The All County Paving crew told those elderly, infirm grandparents that they couldn’t have access to the center.

Adam Harris directed questions and complaints to All County’s Herb Miller who did not immediately return a call to BocaNewsNow.com.

It is unclear if permits were pulled for the paving work or if Palm Beach County was notified of the road closures.

Drivers were told they could not access Gymnastics Plus and other merchants at Shadowood Square in Boca Raton Saturday Morning. All County Paving of Delray Beach blocked the handicapped and infirm from entering, telling them “to walk.”

It was also immediately unclear if All County workers understood the Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA) or what violation they may be cited for by blocking the elderly or infirm from unfettered access.
