Undergrounding of Utilities and Streetscape Beautification for A1A
Construction to Start in the Next Few Months
The City of Hollywood Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA) is preparing to mobilize the construction of the undergrounding of overhead utilities and streetscape beautification. The project boundaries are along State Road A1A from Hollywood Boulevard to Sheridan Street. This is the CRA’s completion of the SR A1A Complete Streets project which was partially completed by the Florida Department of Transportation, and is expected to start mobilizing toward the end of this year.
The project includes but is not limited to:
- Undergrounding of overhead utilities
- A new signalized intersection at Garfield Street
- New landscape on sidewalks on both sides of SR A1A and in the medians
- New sidewalks with colorful concrete pavers on the west side of SR A1A
- New pedestrian lighting on the sidewalks on both sides of SR A1A
The CRA invites you to participate by attending their virtual meetings or by calling their office directly. They would appreciate the opportunity to be able to contact you at frequent intervals during the course of this project and provide updates, get your feedback or any other issues. In addition, they will have a project website that will be updated weekly with scheduling and any other pertinent information.
Currently, the CRA is seeking information regarding your business operations, food/beverage delivery times, trash hauler schedules, and any other operations which could be impacted by the construction of this project. The objective is to minimize any disruptions to your business.
The Hollywood Beach Business Association and the City of Hollywood CRA look forward to partnering with you and the contractor for a successful collaboration and to minimalize disruption during this construction phase. For more information, please visit the CRA website or call 954.924.2980.
