US-441/State Road 7 Roadway Project
The US-441/State Road 7 corridor has been one of the City of Hollywood’s most important residential and commercial districts for decades. The corridor is home to retail shops, restaurants, automotive dealerships and many other businesses, and thousands of Hollywood residents live in the area. US-441/State Road 7 is accessed every day by individuals heading to work along the corridor or elsewhere in Hollywood, and local businesses depend on this thoroughfare for commerce.

The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) has been conducting a comprehensive roadway improvement project along the US-441/State Road 7 corridor for some time. We are pleased to report that the project will soon focus on US-441/State Road 7 in Hollywood from south of Pembroke Road to Stirling Road. Construction work will be carried out in segments, the first beginning in the spring of 2014 in the area of Southwest 25 Street north to Fillmore Street. The second segment involves construction work from Fillmore Street north to Stirling Road and is scheduled to begin in the winter of 2015. Construction work on US-441/State Road 7 in Hollywood is scheduled to be completed by 2018.

Once completed, US-441/State Road 7 in Hollywood will feature six traffic lanes, landscaped safety medians, dry retention areas for stormwater runoff, new lighting and sidewalks, bicycle lanes, and bus bays. The City of Hollywood Department of Public Works is working with FDOT to develop the planned dry retention areas into linear parks that will make US-441/State Road 7 much more visually appealing and safer for pedestrians, residents ,businesses, and motorists.

Making our vision of a vibrant, revitalized US-441/State Road 7 corridor a reality will require hard work by construction crews as well as continued understanding and patience from local residents and business owners. Traffic patterns in the construction area will be affected. Specifically, vehicular access into and out of the Hollywood Gardens neighborhood will be limited along US-441/State Road 7 between Hollywood Boulevard and Johnson Street (thus requiring the permanent closing of certain streets).

The proposed traffic plan for this area is as follows:

• A southbound left turn into the neighborhood or U-turn capability at Fillmore Street
• A northbound left turn or U-turn at Pierce Street
• Right turn only at intersecting streets entering US-441/State Road 7 except at Fillmore Street where left, right and through maneuvers will be allowed
• Closing Columbus Parkway at its intersection with Hollywood Boulevard and US-441/State Road 7 for safety reasons
• Closing vehicular access to and from US-441/State Road 7 at Tyler, Taylor, Pierce and Lincoln streets
• FDOT is considering limiting access at Glen Parkway and Johnson Street. Traffic signals will remain operational at the intersections of Hollywood Boulevard and Johnson Street at US-441/State Road 7 

The conceptual parkway plan for the stretch of US-441/State Road 7 from Hollywood Boulevard north to Johnson Street was presented to the Hollywood City Commission during its regular meeting on July 18, 2012.
