The 300 block of Clematis Street, between S. Olive Avenue and S. Dixie Highway, will be closed to road traffic effective Monday, June 4, 2018 in order to begin work on the Clematis Streetscape project. This portion of Clematis Street is expected to reopen in October barring any project delays.
The Clematis Streetscape project will make design improvements to Clematis Street that will elevate the experience and overall quality of life for Clematis merchants, residents and visitors. After several public input meetings with Clematis Street merchants, other area merchants, stakeholders, residents and visitors, the City Commission voted to implement recommendations from the award-winning design team, Dover, Kohl & Partners.
The 300 block of Clematis Street is the first phase of the multi-phased project and will take place during the summer months for minimal impact with an estimated completion in October 2018. The Clematis Streetscape project is one of several City of WPB and WPB CRA projects aimed at ensuring that the city’s downtown core evolves with the needs of residents, merchants, and visitors.
NOTE: Pedestrian traffic will remain unaffected and businesses will remain open during the project.
Suggested alternate routes around downtown West Palm Beach include Banyan Blvd. and Datura Street.
