Yamato Road closure at Tri-Rail tracks extended; street to reopen Thursday

Yamato Road will be closed at the Tri-Rail tracks for one more day.

The area was supposed to reopen Wednesday morning, but now will reopen at 4 a.m. Thursday.

Yamato Road at the South Florida Regional Transportation Authority tracks also closed in 2004. At the time, traffic near the closure was light, but surrounding areas experienced backups. (Palm Beach Post staff file photo)

Crews have faced mechanical problems and higher-than-expected downtime because of rail traffic, and paving has not yet been completed, according to a project engineer at the work site.

Florida Highway Patrol and the Boca Raton Police Department will continue to help with traffic until the work is completed.
