Here are the details of three long-term projects in the Palm Beach Gardens area to keep in mind.
RAISING PGA BOULEVARD
This roughly 2-mile project from the Beeline Highway to the C-18 Canal started in 2015 and is expected to be complete in the next month. The project was supposed to be finished this past fall. The work includes redesigning and raising the roadway and building a new, single-span bridge with better drainage and a wildlife crossing.
Estimated cost: $9.47 million
Lane closures: One lane may be closed in each direction 7 a.m. until 7 p.m. Monday through Saturday for final paving through mid-February. Flagmen will direct traffic as needed.
BEELINE AND NORTHLAKE LIGHTING
This less than half-mile project to install a new lighting system at the intersection of the Beeline Highway and Northlake Boulevard started Nov. 28. It’s expected to be complete this spring.
Estimated cost: $369,071
Lane closures: Beeline Highway may have a shoulder closed and one lane may be closed intermittently in each direction 7 a.m. through 6 p.m. Monday through Friday.
BEELINE HIGHWAY AT PRATT WHITNEY ENTRANCE
This six-mile project to widen and resurface the road actually started in Jupiter on Oct. 20, 2014. Workers are building a four-lane divided highway and median, installing a new traffic signal at the Beeline Highway and Indiantown Road intersection and upgrading lights, signage and striping.
Estimated cost: $22 million
Lane closures: One lane of traffic in each direction on both the Beeline Highway and Indiantown Road may be closed intermittently during the day and at night Sunday through Friday through February. Workers with flags will direct traffic.
