Developers making progress on 40th Street construction

It looks like the wheels are finally in motion for the construction project at 40th Street in Wellington.

Businessman Mark Bellissimo and Wellington Equestrian Partners were tasked with paving and extending the road, using it as another access point for the Palm Beach International Equestrian Center. The idea was to take some traffic pressure off of Pierson Road.

The project has been delayed for years, and village officials set a deadline of July 7 when they’d pull the posted bond and contract out the work themselves. But officials are now satisfied with the progress and will not pull the bond.

The construction timeline is unclear.
