Copans Road Resurfacing

 
​A Portion of Copans Road Gets Resurfaced

Broward County Highway and Bridge Maintenance Division is supervising the milling and resurfacing of Copans Road between NW 3rd Avenue and Federal Highway (US1). The work began on March 1, 2015 and is on target to complete on or before May 8, 2015. 

To minimize construction impacts to nearby schools and businesses, the majority of the work is being done during the nighttime hours of 6:00 PM and 6:00 AM with one lane of traffic open in each direction. All travel lanes remain open during the busy morning and evening peak hours.

Sidewalks are accessible to pedestrians at all times during construction. Additionally, County staff is present on-site until the project is completed. We are pleased to say that no problems have been reported for the duration of this project.

​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.
