At the specific request of the Citizens' Association of Palm Beach and Town Councilman Dick Kleid, help was enlisted from our State Representative Jeff Clemens and the Town Council through Mayor Gail Coniglio to have the Coast Guard open the Lake Worth Bridge during the closing of A-1-A at designated times rather than on demand.
We are pleased to report that effective May 1, 2012, the bridge will only open on the quarter-hour and three-quarter hour, 24 hours-a-day, seven days-a-week. Public vessels of the United States and tugs with tows may be passed at anytime, as with all bridges.
Lew Crampton, Chairman
Citizens' Association of Palm Beach
