JOG ROAD EXTENSION (SR 710 TO NORTHLAKE BOULEVARD)
Palm Beach Gardens, FL
This extension of Jog Road from Beeline Highway to Northlake Boulevard was approximately 0.7 miles. Efforts included obtaining an Environmental Resource Permit from the South Florida Water Management District and a Section 404 Dredge & Fill Permit from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers for impacts to jurisdictional wetlands. Avoidance and minimization of impacts to wetlands was accomplished through the use of retaining walls where possible, with a 300-foot secondary impact zone due to an adjacent mitigation area. A fenced wildlife crossing was installed to reduce or eliminate animal mortality from vehicles.
