WALK PATH OVERLAY PROJECT
September 21, 2018
The Town of Highland Beach will begin the resurfacing of the existing walk path on September 26, 2018. The duration of the project is expected to be about 30 days (weather permitting).
This project is being performed in order to ensure a smooth, crack-free asphalt surface to help ensure safe pedestrian passage.
This project is a temporary measure while a more comprehensive project, known as “Ocean Walk & More” is in the planning stage. Residents will be given the opportunity to provide input during the design phase & the project will appear as a ballot item on a future voter referendum.
Please be careful when using the walk path while it is being resurfaced. Heed warning signs and worker’s directions as your safety is our primary concern. This will also help expedite the project.
If you have any questions, please contact Town Hall at 561-278-4548.
Thank you for your cooperation and the continued support for Town infrastructure improvement projects!
