Construction to begin on Lemon Bay Park boardwalks

Work to replace 10 boardwalks at Lemon Bay Park in Englewood will begin this week. Signs will be posted for portions of the nature trail and overlooks that will be closed during construction. The project includes structural elements, decking and handrails.

Schippers Marine Construction Inc. of Crystal River will carry out the $302,000 project, which is expected to be completed by October 2011. The firm is one of three approved for coastal facilities projects under a unit price contract awarded in September 2009.

Funding is provided through the penny infrastructure surtax (1-cent sales tax).
