Dixie Highway Project Done Early; Road Open to Traffic

(Monday, July 30, 2007)  City of West Palm Beach crews have finished the road construction project at the intersection of South Dixie Highway and Monceaux Road a month ahead of schedule.   South Dixie Highway at Monceaux Road is now open to traffic.

“I’d like to commend City staff and everyone who worked on this project on a job well done,” said West Palm Beach Mayor Lois J. Frankel.  “The fact that South Dixie Highway is reopening a month early is welcome news for motorists, nearby residents, and business owners.”

The City replaced underground storm drainage, sewer, and water piping.  The contractor performing the work, Chaz Equipment Company, worked extended hours, including some weekends, to help bring the project to early completion.  Work crews also encountered less groundwater than originally anticipated, helping reduce the project’s duration.
