CAMINO REAL BRIDGE REPAIRS BEGUN
For several years discussion about repairs to the Camino Real Bridge over the Intracoastal Waterway in Boca Raton, built in the 1930’s, has been discussed, and now it has started and completion is scheduled in mid-November. Boat traffic on the ICW will be able to pass under the bridge. Painting and repair of the beams and “a different deck” are planned, to be paid for by Palm Beach County. In 1998 the county spent over $100,000 to replace gear boxes. Alternative routes include the Palmetto Park Road Bridge or Hillsboro Boulevard Bridge in Deerfield Beach. Addison Mizner designed Camino Real Boulevard, and Clarence Geist built the bridge.
