The Hollywood section of the 14th Avenue Mobility Improvement Project from Atlantic Shores Boulevard in Hallandale Beach to Sheridan Street is now complete. The project limits within Hollywood were from Moffett Street to Sheridan Street. The $2,099,354 improvements included:
o Widening the roadway to accommodate bicycle lanes on 14th Avenue, Arthur Street and Harding Street
o Adding shared lane pavement markings to enhance the safe travel of bicycles and motor vehicles in the same traffic lane.
o Installing a shared-use path (off-road path) on Polk Street and 14th Avenue.
This project began in December 2019 and was completed several months ahead of schedule.
An additional improvement along 14th Avenue is a new 5 foot wide sidewalk between Wiley Street to Funston Street. This project is funded and construction planning is currently underway. As part of the City’s Bicycle Mobility Plan and recent Surtax grant application, City staff is requesting funding to install a 1.2 mile bicycle route on 14th Avenue between Polk Street to Sheridan Street. This proposed “Greenway” is currently in the conceptual stages and would require public input before final designs and construction. The project will be considered at an upcoming City Commission meeting with a target completion date of mid-2023.
