DELRAY BEACH, FL ( (Copyright © 2023 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — The never-ending road-widening and construction on Lyons Road between Clint Moore and Atlantic will be never-ending for quite a while longer. Originally supposed to be done months ago, the project was extended into April. Now it’s been extended at least into May.

In a document obtained by, Palm Beach County Engineering and Public Works Officials revealed that they believe the project could extend into the summer — as additional delays are expected due to a shortage of traffic signaling supplies.

“We are expecting delays on material arrivals for the equipment for the traffic signal at Atlantic Avenue and Lyons Road which will push out the project’s final completion date. Staff is still working with the contractor on a plan to have a temporary signal installed in the interim so the remaining work can still be completed on time.”

Much of the construction issue seems to be the construction contractors. Motorists noticed that work seemingly stopped again a few weeks ago, leading Palm Beach County to say it would fine the contractors for delays. The work is now slowly resuming. Traffic, however, remains compressed to just two lanes — one in each direction — for most of Lyons, still leading to accidents and problems during rush hours.

The area in question runs by new-ish communities built by G.L. Homes, including Boca Bridges, Seven Bridges, The Bridges, and Lotus. Mizner Country Club is also affected. Lyons Road was never built to handle so many cars so had to be expanded — it’s the expansion that continues. After starting the project last year, officials realized that utility lines beneath Lyons Road had not been mapped — leading to a complete work stoppage. The project was reconfigured and work resumed, with an April completion date. That date will not be met.
