A new concrete multi-use path is planned along the east side of Sherry Drive and Seminole Road from Atlantic Blvd. to 17th Street. Field survey has been completed, utility information has been collected and concept design is underway. The current schedule for construction of the sidewalk is during the second half of 2017.
The main purpose of the sidewalk improvement is to increase pedestrian safety, especially for children attending Atlantic Beach Elementary School. The design and construction of the sidewalk is being funded by the Florida Department of Transportation.
The City of Atlantic Beach has funded additional Public Information Services to keep you better informed about the project. There has been a neighborhood meeting where 30% conceptual designs were presented to you for comment. Another Town Hall meeting was held on August 27th.
The new sidewalk will not be constructed on private property but will be constructed on the ROW adjacent to the street. We recognize the hard work you put into maintaining your yards. We will do our best to minimize impact to your yard and will attempt to contact you individually if we see something we think might interest you before construction starts.
The property survey you received when you bought your home should have information on the limits of the ROW abutting your property. The design consultant is incorporating the public's and staff's concerns about the project in the 60% plans which should be completed by mid-April. Another public meeting will be held once these plans are received. The completion of the plans should be completed about one month later, and the project will then go out for bids.
Final project completion is expected by June 2018. If you have concerns, please call the Atlantic Beach Department of Public Works at 904-247-5834.
