The Civic Association’s third annual Beach Bus Tour provided residents with a view of the issues and progress on the Shore Protection program in the Town of Palm Beach. Click below to see the Civic Association video:

Presented by Rob Weber, the town’s Coastal Coordinator, the three hour tour highlighted six areas but covered the entire town coastline: Midtown Beach, Wells Road, the inlet, Angler Ave., Phipps Ocean Park, and Reach 8 at the southern tip of Palm Beach.

In addition to residents on the tour, current and former town leaders attended: Town Council President Michael Pucillo, former Town Councilman Bill Diamond, Town Manager Tom Bradford, and Shore Protection Board Members Jerry Frank and Lee Goldstein.

PBCA 064-w600At the Angler Ave. stop, tour participants witnessed the inlet maintenance dredge depositing sand offshore near Reef Road in about 13 feet of water.  Sand was from the center of the inlet and the operation expects to move 70,000 cubic yards of sand to open the inlet for the Port’s current shipping traffic.

Dick Hunegs, President for the 3360 Condominium, hosted a wonderful reception at the end of the tour. Participants saw where the trucks will haul sand through their property from A1A to the beach.

Southern Blvd. Bridge Project Update
Posted by R. Michael Brown
Published: Friday, 13 March 2015 17:15

Florida is making plans to replace Southern Boulevard Bridge, connecting Palm Beach to West Palm Beach.

The Florida Department of Transportation unveiled its plans for replacing the Southern Boulevard Bridge over the Intracoastal Waterway in West Palm Beach while it's still in the midst of building the replacement for the Flagler Memorial Bridge.

This time, the state hopes to avoid the pitfalls that have come with replacing the Flagler bridge. The state transportation department plans to build a temporary bridge to the north of the existing Southern Boulevard bridge to keep traffic moving between the mainland and the island.

Here's what's planned:

  • A two-lane bridge with 10-feet-wide shoulders to accommodate bicyclists and 6-feet-wide sidewalks in both directions;
  • A 21-foot clearance and a span of 125 feet; the old bridge has a 14-foot vertical clearance and an 80-foot span;
  • A smaller relief bridge to the east of the Southern bridge also is being replaced;
  • On the Post Memorial Causeway, there will enhanced parking areas, paved shoulders and new sidewalks; and;
  • There will be a new left-turn lane from the bridge onto Flagler Avenue.


Construction on the Southern Boulevard Bridge is scheduled to begin in the summer of 2016 just as work is finishing up on the new Flagler bridge. Flagler's construction is expected to be completed in late 2016.
