BusinessFlare identifies business impact of pending bridge closure
The village of Tequesta, Florida lies north of the city of Jupiter, and is connected to the south via 2 bridges: Highway A1A, and Highway 1. FDOT recently notified the town that they would begin construction on Highway 1 before closing it for 19 months in 2023. With little external guidance on how the closure may impact local businesses, the village manager sought help from Kevin Crowder and his team of consultants at BusinessFlare. How could they understand and mitigate the impacts of the bridge closure on local businesses, employees, and residents?

Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) is set to close 1 of 2 bridges connecting Tequesta, FL to all areas south. How can they minimize impacts to local businesses, employees, and residents?
BusinessFlare used Placer data to identify the centers and businesses that would be most impacted, which categories will have new opportunities, and to explore key actions Tequesta can take to help those businesses.
City managers and municipal users are so impressed when I tell them we can give them near real-time data and insights about their residents, employees, and businesses. There’s no guessing with Placer, just data, empowering them in situations where they would otherwise have no idea of potential impact to their cities or ways to mitigate it.
