  • installing site furnishing elements including accent seating and bollards

Installing LED pedestrian lights along the west side of A1A that will provide amber-colored lighting during turtle nesting season and white lighting during the remainder of the year

Construction will begin Apr. 24, and is expected to be completed in December 2023.
