Exciting Infrastructure and Beautification Changes Starting on City’s Most Iconic Street
WEST PALM BEACH, FLA. (June 4, 2018) – West Palm Beach Mayor Jeri Muoio, City Commissioners and representatives from the West Palm Beach Community Redevelopment Agency broke ground on the anticipated Clematis Streetscape project on Monday, June 4 in the 300 block of Clematis Street between S. Dixie Highway and S. Olive Ave.  City officials, along with downtown stakeholders and business owners, attended and officially commenced the work by putting shovels in the dirt.
 
The Clematis Streetscape project will make design improvements to Clematis Street that will elevate the experience and overall quality of life for Clematis merchants, residents and visitors.  After several public input meetings with Clematis Street merchants, other area merchants, stakeholders, residents and visitors, the City Commission voted to implement recommendations from the award-winning design team, Dover, Kohl & Partners.  Project highlights include:
·    Creating a curbless street that prioritizes the pedestrian;
·    Narrowing the traffic lanes to slow travel speed for cars;
·    Adding high-visibility crosswalks and mid-block crossings;
·    Adding more regularly spaced shade trees;
·    Widening the sidewalk to allow more walkway space, dining space and furnished seating space;
·    Reducing parking spaces to make room for “people space.
One of the City’s primary goals for the project is to shorten the construction schedule and minimize disruption to valued merchants with a multi-phased approach for the street improvements. The first phase of the project will take place on the 300 block of Clematis Street between S. Dixie Highway and S. Olive Avenue, with an estimated completion in October 2018.  Phase two of the project is expected to begin in the summer of 2019.
NOTE:  The 300 block of Clematis Street is closed only to automobile traffic.  Sidewalks and businesses will remain open during construction.
