The project cost $630,810, paid for by the Greater Boca Raton Beach and Park District. The boardwalk
closed in February 2015 when engineers discovered it was about to collapse. The new structure
is elevated. ‘It has a crawl space beneath it, and you feel like you’re more a part of the canopy,’
District Chairman Robert Rollins said. ‘It’s a lot easier flow for the critters that live there.’
Work on two more phases has not started.
