In May 2013, the City successfully applied for a grant from the Broward Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) for a "Complete Streets" project along Hollywood Boulevard from City Hall to Dixie Highway. The City was awarded a grant for approximately $7.6 million with the caveat that the design incorporates "Complete Streets" guidelines. This project serves as Broward County MPO's flagship project as a model for future County "Complete Streets" endeavors. Watch the video below to learn more about the Broward MPO.
Phase II is Complete!
The Official Groundbreaking Ceremony was held on Tuesday, June 27, 2017. You can watch the highlight video below! This first phase of the project was managed by the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) for the Broward Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) and the City. This portion of the project included demolition, new elevations, an underground drainage system, street lights, pavement, pedestrian walks, parking configuration, mid-block crossings, street light mast arms at 24th Avenue and new center medians.
Now that Phase I is complete, the City's portion of the improvement project will begin. This portion of the project is comprised of landscaping and irrigation. For questions regarding Phase II, please contact Engineering 954.921.3251.
What is the goal for the Hollywood Boulevard Complete Street Project?
The goal of the corridor redesign is to promote a street designed for more than one use that will work for children, seniors, wheelchairs users, transit system users, bicyclists, pedestrians, sidewalk retailers and other businesses; and to enhance the quality of life of those who live and work within the area thus strengthening the conditions and environment that allows an area to evolve and thrive.
