Bike Path Improvements Begin

District V City Commissioner Mary Lou Hoover this morning came out to break ground on a project that will greatly improve the bike and pedestrian path that runs along Atlantic Blvd. and Bertha Street.

Commission Hoover was joined by Jerry Peschke, president of the 1800 Atlantic Homeowners’ Association, City Manager Greg Veliz, Assistant City Manager Patti McLauchlin, Richard Toppino, President Charley Toppino & Sons, Inc., and Reynaldo Martinez P.E., Director of Operations Charley Toppino & Sons, Inc.

The project is expected to take about three weeks, and will improve the popular bike and running route with a smooth surface and better drainage. The path will be closed daily during work hours, from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m., but accessible in the early mornings and evenings. In addition, the outbound lane of Bertha Street will be closed during work hours and detour signage will direct vehicular traffic.
