Ajax Paving Industries of Florida, LLC was out on the streets of Boca Grande on Wednesday and Thursday, beginning the paving of our village roads.
Project Manager Scott Gilliard will be giving the Boca Beacon updates as needed – usually about every week – until they are done with the roads.
On Thursday Ajax began tearing up (they call it “milling”) the streets on Waterway Avenue, Lee Avenue and Tarpon Avenue. They also started working on the Bike Path around 1st Street, so expect delays and possible detours there as well.
They expect to continue with the milling on Friday, and hopefully to start paving those roads on Monday.
On Monday they also hope to start milling W. Railroad Avenue and 4th and 3rd between Gulf Blvd. and E. Railroad.
So for the next week to 10 days, expect delays in those areas. Parts of the roads will be closed as well. Keep reading the Beacon for more updates.
