Lighthouse Drive Bridge Repairs
Village Council approved a contract with Proshot Concrete, Inc. for remedial repairs to the Lighthouse Drive Bridge in an amount not-to-exceed $161,200. The Lighthouse Drive Bridge has been in use for 60 years and is nearing the end of its useful life. A recent FDOT bridge inspection report gave the bridge only a 27.2 % sufficiency rating. The sufficiency rating formula is a method of evaluating bridge data by calculating four (4) separate factors to obtain a numeric value which is indicative of bridge sufficiency to remain in service. The result of this method is a percentage in which 100 percent would represent an entirely sufficient bridge and zero percent would represent an entirely insufficient or deficient bridge. The four (4) factor ratings are:
- Structural adequacy and safety
- Serviceability and functional obsolescence
- Essentiality for public use
- Special reductions
The Lighthouse Drive Bridge is inspected annually by an independent FDOT bridge inspector. Based on these inspection reports and a Village Engineer review the Village should seriously consider a plan for the bridge within 5 to 8 years. In the meantime remedial repairs will be performed on key elements to stabilize the structure until such time the bridge can be replaced or abandoned. The project will begin in April and should be completed within 60 days of commencement. One lane of traffic will always be open, and for the majority of the project no lanes will be closed.

Major Street Projects
Village Council approved a contract with M & M Asphalt Maintenance, Inc. for milling and resurfacing streets around the Village in an amount not-to-exceed $400,000. Beginning in May the following street projects will be completed:
- Lighthouse Drive from just west of the bridge to Juniper Drive including all new street striping. (The Prosperity Farms Road intersection has already been done.)
- Oyster Road.
- Riverside Road. (The Anchorage Drive intersection and cul-de-sac have already been done.)
- Atlantic Road (south only section), Lakeside Drive (Atlantic Road to Cruiser Road North), and the Cruiser Road loop.
- West end of Camelot Motor Lodge alley. (Needed to resolve a drainage issue.)
This list was developed with the use of the pavement condition assessment software and confirmed as appropriate segments to mill and resurface by the Village Engineer. There are many other streets we can and will need to do, but we need to start somewhere and these are the priorities right now based on all the information available. The project should be completed within 30 days of commencement. If you have questions or concerns please contact the Director of Public Works, Steven Hallock, at 561.691.3440 or email@example.com.
The Village budgeted $154,000.00 in FY 2017-18 for repair and replacement of sidewalks throughout the community. This work has been deferred in the past and requires a significant investment this year in order to eliminate potential tripping hazards. A two-phased approach to address the sidewalk maintenance needs is being used. The first phase involves saw cutting the sidewalks (as opposed to grinding the edges) to remove trip hazards. We have performed two (2) rounds of sidewalk saw cutting this year and eliminated 485 sidewalk tripping hazards. A list for a third round of sidewalk saw cutting is being developed for Village Council consideration on April 12, 2018. If approved the list of these sidewalks will be posted here on the webpage. If you have questions or concerns please contact the Director of Public Works, Steven Hallock, at 561.691.3440 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
