DELRAY BEACH, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2022 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — Your drive on Lyons Road between Atlantic and Clint Moore is about to get worse before it gets better. Construction crews are returning to the area to continue the work they started — then abruptly stopped — several months ago.

As BocaNewsNow.com has reported extensively, massive lane construction on the stretch of Lyons was started — then halted — when utility lines were found under the road. The lines had not been mapped. The problem wasn’t found until major traffic restrictions and lane closures were put into place. Those closures and restrictions remained in place during the work stoppage, leading to crashes and extreme traffic delays.

A community meeting held at The Bridges several weeks ago seemingly pushed Palm Beach County to move forward with greater speed. BocaNewsNow.com obtained the latest construction update memo issued by the Palm Beach County Engineering Department

The memo appears in its entirety, below.
