Cherry Road is the primary access point into the Belvedere Homes/Golfview Heights neighbhorhood from Military Trail. The project seeks to improve pedestrian and bicyclist facilities and safety by adding an 8 ft. multi-use path on the north side of the roadway, sidewalks on the south roadway segment between Country Club Road and Quail Drive where there are currently none, as well as pedestrian-scale lighting for nighttime safety and landscaping to provide shade.
In FY 20 the CRA, in partnership with PBC Engineering, was awarded $1 million in FDoT TAP (Transportation Alternatives Program) funding through the Palm Beach TPA to implement the project.
