BOYNTON BEACH — Parts of Ocean Avenue and Federal Highway in Boynton Beach will soon look slightly different with the addition of two new entry signs and new street lighting.
The Boynton Beach Community Redevelopment Agency has asked for contractors to bid on the two projects and the CRA board will likely choose a company in March.
The projects are part of the CRA's downtown vision and master plan as well as the agency's redevelopment plan.
One of the entry signs will be in the South Federal Highway median at Gulfstream Boulevard, just south of Wal-Mart. The second sign will be on the west side of North Federal Highway south of Northeast 15th Avenue and north of the C-16 Canal, according to documents.
The sign for North Federal Highway is larger than the other. Both signs are blue and white, and say "Welcome to Boynton Beach."
Ocean Avenue between Seacrest Boulevard and Federal Highway, which is where the Civic Center and the Schoolhouse Children's Museum and Learning Center are, will be getting new lights.
The project includes new street light poles at the west end of Ocean Avenue and new tree grates on the sidewalk along the north and south sides of Ocean Avenue.
New lighting features will be installed within the trees in front of the Civic Center and Dewey Park, the documents say.
The projects went out for bid Jan. 15 and interested companies were expected to attend a pre-bid conference Tuesday.
