UTILITY IMPROVEMENT PROJECTS
UTILITIES DEPARTMENT - SUMMARY OF KEY IMPROVEMENT PROJECTS
Harbor Estates Neighborhood Improvement ProjectThe Harbor Estates Neighborhood experiences periodic roadway flooding and standing water during heavy rainfall events, which has affected the residential property owners located in the vicinity of North and South Roads. To improve the quality and reliability of the Harbor Estates Neighborhood Utilities, the City of Boynton Beach will provide a new stormwater system that will collect the stormwater and discharge through four (4) shallow outfalls located along the north edge of North Road and one (1) shallow outfall at the southeast corner of the neighborhood. The project will also include replacing aging and undersized water mains and upgrading fire hydrants in the project area. A new roadway and curbing will also be provided.
The City of Boynton Beach has contracted with the Civil Engineering Firm, Mathews Consulting, Inc., to design and permit these utility improvements. The project is currently in the 90% design stage and will be moving into the final permitting stage after this Public Meeting.
The third Public Meeting was held at City Library Program Room, 208 S. Seacrest Blvd. on Wednesday, February 15, 2017 from 6:30 - 8:00 pm.
Below is a link to the 90% design plans available for review and the overall project brochure:
