Hollywood Gardens West & Taft Street Sidewalk Improvement Project Construction Update
The Hollywood Gardens West Improvement Project is underway. The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) has awarded a $2.6 million contract to Horizon Contractors Inc., for improvements along the Hollywood Gardens West community and on Taft Street from N 20 Avenue to N 14 Avenue in Hollywood. Construction is slated to be completed in spring 2019.
On Monday, September 10th the contractor began constructing new sidewalks on Tyler Street from SR 7 to N 56 Avenue. This work will be done over approximately three weeks with crews working between 7:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m., weather permitting. Areas with existing sidewalk will not be affected.
The operation involves removing approximately six inches of existing soil and pouring concrete for the new sidewalks. The concrete will need to cure over a period of 72 hours before vehicles are able to drive over it. Private driveways will be inaccessible for approximately three days while crews work in front of each property. Inspectors will attempt to notify property owners before the work begins so they may move vehicle(s) as driveways will not be accessible during the 3-day work period until the concrete is cured.
Temporary parking in the swale will be allowed while this work is ongoing. FDOT has coordinated with Code Compliance on this project so citations will not be issued in areas where sidewalks are curing.
