PD&E Studies | US 1/State Road (SR) 5 Boca PD&E Study

The Purpose:

The general purpose of this project is to increase capacity on US 1/State Road (SR) 5 in southeastern Palm Beach County in the City of Boca Raton while also identifying potential improvements for transit, pedestrian and bicycle facilities. The project corridor from Glades Road to Yamato Road is a 2.8 mile north-south four-land divided roadway providing direct linkage to Interstate 95 (I-95). The area, currently served by Palm Tran’s bus routes 1, 91 and 94, will benefit from enhancements to the connection from Boca Raton to other downtown regions along Florida’s east coast including the City of Deerfield Beach and the City of Delray Beach.

The Project:

Proposed alternatives include widening or reconstructing the existing rural four-lane divided roadway to a six-lane divided roadway with a raised median with either suburban or urban typical sections. Other alternatives include upgrades to the storm water drainage system, traffic signals, landscape and lighting. Pedestrian, ADA and bicycle amenities will include curb ramps, pedestrian signals, sideway connectivity, bus stops and bicycle lanes.

The Public:

Media Relations Group, LLC, embarked on a public involvement campaign in 2010 with the outreach effort continuing throughout the life of the project. MRG has successfully coordinated a Public Kick-off Meeting and Alternatives Workshop where the public was invited to learn about new project developments and express any questions or concerns. MRG was also responsible for branding the project with a pedestrian and bicycle-friendly logo that was included on all collateral materials, and developing all content for the project website. MRG also ensured that each meeting was properly advertised and all residents are aware of the proceedings. Additionally, we maintain a thorough project record that is continually updated as new comments are received and new materials are created.
