Belle Glade Street Paving Initiative
In an effort to improve the infrastructure of the City of Belle Glade, not only for enhancing the appearance of the City but for improving the quality and safety of our streets, the City Commission has over the last 2-3 years undertaken a concerted effort to seek and secure street repair funding. We are pleased to report that we have been very successful in achieving the first part of our goals.
In addition to street repaving, it is important to note that many of these locations will include drainage improvements and/or guardrails as well. Here are the first few phases of our street repair project, but rest assured, there is much more to come!!
