Hiatus Greenway Project

Hiatus Greenway Under Construction

The Hiatus Greenway is part of Broward County’s Greenway Master Plan.  This greenway consists of five miles of 8-foot to 12-foot wide multipurpose sidewalks, approximately 3.5 miles in the City of Plantation and 1.5 miles in the City of Sunrise. The Hiatus Greenway connects to the New River Greenway providing a safe pathway to the Conservation Levee which extends to Palm Beach County.

There are mature trees growing along the project site; however, landscaping will be supplemented to make the greenway more attractive and provide shade for pedestrians and bicyclists. Decorative signage has been placed, and public art in the form of seating amenities and trash receptacles will be installed.  Barring unforeseen conditions, the project is on schedule to be completed by January 2016.

Broward County bridges are among the safest in the State!

​County Bridges Among the Safest in the State

Broward County's bridges received an average Health Index of 92 out of a possible 100, making them among the safest in the State of Florida, according to the recently-released Florida Bridge Information report from the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT). The Health Index measures the overall condition of a bridge and includes 10 to 12 elements that are evaluated by FDOT every two years. 

Broward County Highway and Bridge Maintenance Division oversees the design, construction and maintenance of the County's bridges, which consists of 89 fixed and movable structures. 


We Provide SUNsational Service!

From a grateful Pompano Beach resident:
“Thank you very much for fixing a small sinkhole on Andrews Avenue, [southbound] between McNab Road and Cypress Creek Road. Going to the airport last night, I hit that small crater and thought I ruined my front wheel. Worse yet, I could have lost control of my vehicle. Therefore, I called the police, non-emergency, to alert them to the problem. This afternoon, I went by that area and you had repaired it with asphalt and the danger has been removed. You are to be commended for expediting the completion of the work for the safety of all residents, in quick fashion. Thank you very much and I am very proud to be a longtime resident of Broward County!”

Mosquito Control

​SUNsational Service from Mosquito Control

​From a Broward County resident: It is my pleasure to express my gratitude to Mosquito Control for coming to my neighborhood so quickly and eliminating all of the pesky flying bugs that seemed to entrench my neighborhood.

I spoke to a Mosquito Control employee initially and explained I had been bitten by a flying insect causing a severe reaction, causing me to go to the Emergency Room. As always, she was extremely helpful and professional. A Mosquito Control Inspector came the day after I called last week which was "speed of light" service.

I go outside every morning at sunup to feed the squirrels, and there is a huge difference since the spraying. Thank you so much for providing this excellent service to Broward County residents such as myself. It is difficult to express the level of my gratitude for your department's continued professionalism and dedication by taking care of this particular spray request so quickly
