Hollywood Gardens West Sidewalk Improvement Project
The Hollywood Gardens West Sidewalk and Bicycle Facility Improvement Project is a Broward Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) "Complete Streets" Initiative. In partnership with the City and the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT), the MPO's goal is to provide for sidewalk connectivity and bicycle facility improvements within the Hollywood Gardens West neighborhood.
As illustrated in the diagram above, the project area is bound by Hollywood Boulevard to the South, Johnson Street to the North, US441/SR7 to the West and N. 56th Avenue to the East.
The scope of the project is to include construction of new sidewalk spans that will link to existing sidewalks in the area, in an effort to create a continuous, connected, pedestrian-friendly neighborhood. Designated bike lanes are also proposed, as part of the project, on Columbus Parkway and Glenn Parkway. Shared bike lanes are proposed on North 58th Avenue, Lincoln Street, Fillmore Street, Polk Street and on Taft Street between North 14th Avenue and North 20th Avenue. Minor drainage improvements will also be a part of the project as required.
Project Timeline and Cost
Construction is expected to begin in October 2017 and last approximately 200 days. Construction will be done in phases to lessen the effects and burden on the community. The approximately $4.5 million dollar improvement project will be funded by the Broward MPO.
FDOT hosted a Public Information Workshops in July of 2016 for interested parties to learn more about the project, see the proposed plans and have questions answered and concerns addressed.
