Eight new lifeguard towers, costing $126,000 each, will replace the aging stationary towers in Delray Beach. The new towers have skids so they can be moved when safety conditions change at the municipal beach. All eight were scheduled to be in place by June 4, weather permitting. The towers were built in sections at a warehouse and brought to the Casuarina Road entrance, where they were assembled into a single unit. Once at their locations, the towers were painted, stairs attached and new roofing added to match that on the main pavilion. The towers have impact glass windows and louvered shutters to protect the windows from flying debris and vandalism. Solar panels on the roofs will power lifeguards’ police radios and operate fans in the hot summer months. Tim Stepien/The Coastal Star
