The public will be updated on the progress of the construction project during a virtual meeting scheduled for Friday.

On time and on budget, a $38 million upgrade of the Town of Palm Beach Marina will be complete by Nov. 1 as scheduled, Public Works Director Paul Brazil confirmed Monday.

Construction is winding down on the massive renovation project, in which all facilities will be upgraded.

Work includes the expansion of 84 slips to allow larger boats, replacing stationary docks with floating docks, installing a new security system, and upgrading technology to include high-speed Wi-Fi and enhanced shore power.

The project also includes the addition of a fourth dock at the north end of the marina, which was built in the 1940s and most recently renovated in 1998.
