Boca Club bridge to re-open

The historic Boca Club Bridge on Camino Real should reopen June 20 after temporary steel pilings are installed.

“We’re trying to safe it up,” said Charlie Rich of county engineering services. “We have to put four holes in the middle of the bridge to drive the pilings in.”

The county closed the bridge connecting the barrier island to the mainland on March 26 for the 26-day repair. Motorists are being detoured to the Palmetto Park Bridge and the Hillsboro Boulevard Bridge.

The piling work is not connected to a planned rehabilitation of the 73-year-old bridge, county special projects manager Dave Young said. The restoration, which may include widening the traffic lanes and designing a new control house, is still under study, Young said.
