S. Dixie Highway Drainage, Utility Improvements Continue

When:  Beginning Tuesday, July 6, 2010
Affected Area:  South Dixie Highway at Edmor Road

(07-01-10)  The City of West Palm Beach is making infrastructure improvements along Edmor Road, including at the intersection with Dixie Highway.  As a result of the project, South Dixie Highway will be closed to traffic at Edmor Road for a period of approximately 30 (thirty) days beginning Tuesday, July 6, 2010.  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.

All residents, businesses, and their customers will continue to have access to their destinations along Dixie Highway during this period.  Through traffic should detour via Olive Avenue or Parker Avenue.  Notices have already been sent to residents and businesses in the construction zone.
