Lauderdale By The Sea News: STREETSCAPE PROJECT WILL START MAY 28THMay 27, 2013
One of the themes contained in the Town’s Master Plan deals with the need to
revitalize the business district on Commercial Boulevard west of State Road A1A,
and to make a bold statement with an entryway sign that you’ve entered a unique
community. The West Commercial Boulevard Project addresses both those issues.
Construction will start on Tuesday, May 28, when workers will begin in the southwest
plaza, located on the south side of Commercial Boulevard near Benihana Restaurant.
Early in the week, crews will set up traffic control signs in the area. Construction will start
later in the week.
Plaza work on the south side of Commercial will run from May 28 to mid-August.
The project includes:
– Creating a wide promenade with expanded sidewalks in front of the shops on the north
and south sides of the road.
– Erecting a dynamic entryway feature motorists will see as they enter Town on
Commercial Boulevard. The sign features a coral reef, a sea turtle and other marine life.
The unique entryway project was approved on April 2 by the Commission
