The Falls at Parkland is a 55+ community that has started development just west of Parkside Drive and immediately south of Loxahatchee Road. The developer, Ryan Homes/Parkland Centerline, is required as a condition of development to construct an extension of Hillsboro Boulevard that will feed into the Falls at Parkland. That extension will run from the existing Hillsboro Boulevard along the south side of Chabad of Parkland, intersect Parkside Drive at a four-way stop, and continue west into the Falls at Parkland. The developer is continuing work constructing the new segment of Hillsboro Boulevard west of Parkside Drive.
Parkside Drive, which had been closed temporarily between the Parkland Tennis Center at Quigley Park and Loxahatchee Road, is now open. There will be periodic and temporary single lane closures at that location through September, but they are expected to be minimally invasive to traffic. Ongoing work includes the addition of turn lanes approaching the new Hillsboro Boulevard-Parkside Drive intersection. As always, weather plays a key role and can alter progress.
