Work on the first of Atlantic Crossing’s two blocks is underway, with activity staged to minimize inconvenience for neighbors and visitors. Excavation has begun for the first underground garage. For pedestrian safety, covered walkways are in place along NE 6th Ave. and will continue along Atlantic Ave. between NE 6th and 7th Aves. Removal of old FPL, Comcast and AT&T utility lines are making way for new lines to be underground. The only street closure is NE 7th Ave. north of NE 1st St., implemented at Palm Trail neighbors’ request, with bike and pedestrian access remaining open.
