Boynton closing parts of key road for urgent sewer-line repairs

BOYNTON Seashore — An investigation into a slight dip in the road on Boynton Beach front Boulevard revealed two compromised, collapsing pipes that could have caused main sewage spills, metropolis officers explained.

The result is a partial shutdown of a big east-west thoroughfare for at minimum a couple of months that has been a key inconvenience to Boynton Seashore drivers and companies.

Crisis substitute and repair service of the sewer pipes, positioned 20 toes underground, induced intensive highway closures Monday.

Boynton Beach front Boulevard west of Lawrence Street will remain shut through July 3, when Lawrence Highway north and south of Boynton Seashore Boulevard is not predicted to reopen right until Aug. 1. Contractors Johnson-Davis Inc. started off development this week.
