BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2022 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — Construction on the stalled Lyons Road widening project creating traffic havoc, delays, and frequent accidents between Clint Moore Road and Atlantic Avenue is set to resume within days. BocaNewsNow.com obtained a memo on Friday outlining complaints made to Palm Beach County, and what Palm Beach County Engineers are doing about them. In some cases, nothing will be changed. In others, slight traffic alterations may be made. The project is expected to continue through April of 2023.

As BocaNewsNow.com has reported, what was supposed to be a road widening completed by December was delayed when engineers found unmapped utility lines beneath Lyons Road. It is unclear why the utilities were not mapped. The find led to a work stoppage several months ago. Despite the project going dormant, lane restrictions remained in effect.

The road — once a secondary road in the Agricultural Reserve — has become a major thoroughfare. G.L. Homes built The Bridges, Seven Bridges, Boca Bridges, and Lotus on Lyons Road which has led to thousands of additional cars each day. Lyons Road also serves Mizner Country Club, Divine Savior Academy, and several new shopping areas closer to Atlantic Avenue. The road was never built for major use — the thousands of new residents led to an urgent need for expansion. Read the memo obtained by BocaNewsNow.com, below. Read our previous coverage here.
