When: Beginning Monday, July 20, 2009
Affected Area: S. Dixie Hwy. at E. Lakewood Road
(07/16/09) As a result of an ongoing City of West Palm Beach project along E. Lakewood Road, South Dixie Highway will be closed to traffic at E. Lakewood Road for a period of approximately 30 (thirty) days beginning Monday, July 20, 2009. As part of the project, the City will be upgrading stormwater pipes, which will improve drainage and help reduce flooding in the area for both homes and businesses. The City is also upgrading aged water lines, resulting in better service for customers and improved fire protection for the area.
Residents, businesses, and their customers will continue to have access to their destinations along Dixie Highway during this period. Northbound through traffic should use either Forest Hill Boulevard to I-95 and southbound through traffic should take Southern Boulevard to I-95. Notices have already been sent to residents and businesses in the construction zone.
