BOCA RATON, FL ( (Copyright © 2023 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — The never-ending construction on Lyons Road between Clint Moore and Atlantic Avenue is getting closer to the possibility of being completed sometime during the century. Palm Beach County just issued its latest update about the road-widening that was supposed to take months but will end up taking nearly two years.

Here is the latest as of Friday, February 24th, 2023:

“Completion of roadway work is still expected in May 2023; however, as previously mentioned. this completion date does not include the intersection at Atlantic Avenue and Lyons Road due to the material delays in Signal items.

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. Staff met with the contractor today and will be meeting with them again on March 1, 2023 to finalize the dates on the temporary signal plans.

Over the past two weeks, the contractor has had a 4-man crew mixing and compacting subgrade, and placing base rock on the west side of Lyons Road from 152m Place north to Atlantic Avenue.

Sidewalks were poured along the east side of Lyons Road, south of Atlantic Avenue The bridge contractor had a crew installing handrail on the L-38 canal bridge. There were surveyors onsite setting grades for the Lyons Road median north of Atlantic Avenue and technicians collecting soil density samples on the subgrade on the west side of Lyons Road, south of Atlantic Avenue.

The contractor submitted a draft Maintenance of Traffic (MOT) plan this week in order to get preliminary comments. We expect this revised MOT plan will allow for the traffic to switch onto the new lanes by mid-April 2023.”

The work was originally supposed to be complete last year, but underground utility cables were incorrectly mapped, leading to a massive overhaul of the project. Lyons Road widening was needed as a result of thousands of homes built by G.L. Homes that led to a dramatic increase in traffic.
