At this time, the focus of surtax funded municipal projects is to prioritize and deliver the 709 projects submitted by municipalities included in the Plan passed by voters. In addition, roadway improvements such as fiber optics, adaptive signal technology evaluation and drainage projects, plus numerous studies, Broward County Transit service enhancements, and data and technology research are in full swing.
The County is currently working on a collaborative 5-year Plan due July 1, 2020 to the Independent Transportation Surtax Oversight Board and the Broward County Board of County Commissioners for approval. The Plan will include public engagement opportunities around large projects.
Below is a sampling of transportation-related projects underway or recently completed in our community. Not all of them are related to or funded by the voter-approved Penny for Transportation. Some are funded all or in part by grants, the gas tax, or other state or federal funding. Some involve Broward’s transportation partners, such as municipalities, the Broward Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) or Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT). Projects that are part of Broward County’s 30-year Penny for Transportation plan will be indicated as such.
