Broward’s Transportation Surtax Team is analyzing projects on a corridor level, meaning, it will deliver some projects in a general linear area that is defined by one or more modes of transportation like highways, railroads and public transit which share a common course. The goal of delivering projects in “corridors” is to enhance communication and planning between the Florida Department of Transportation, Broward County, municipalities, the prime and sub-contractors and any others working on delivering projects, i.e. moving away from individual management of projects to the consolidation of projects so they are done in tandem and efficiently, lessen disruptions, are cost-effective, create the ability for co-location of multiple functions, and improve communication with internal and external stakeholders. Nine delivery corridors are slated for study.

  • Atlantic Boulevard 
  • Commercial Boulevard 
  • Oakland Park Boulevard
  • Griffin Road
  • Sheridan Street
  • Hallandale Beach Boulevard / Miramar Parkway
  • Pine Island Road
  • SR-7 / US-441
  • Andrews Avenue
Broward’s Public Works Division is conducting a Corridor Delivery study for 3 of the 9 above to: 

  • Identify transportation surtax projects and other city projects along, adjacent to or within 1/2 mile of Pine Island Road, Andrews Avenue, and Atlantic Boulevard 
  • Evaluate the feasibility and advantages of implementing certain projects together in order to improve efficiency, maximize coordination, reduce costs and minimize impacts to the public
Transit Project Corridors
Broward County Transit is conducting a Transit Corridor Study to: 

  • Identify suitable transit capital and operational investments for upgraded services 
  • Premium transit alternatives that will be examined for suitability include: Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) and Light Rail Transit (LRT) 
Broward County Transit is conducting a Rail Network Corridor Study: 
26 miles of light rail capital and operating were included in the original plan. Studies are evaluating:
  • Where potential rail network corridors should be developed 
  • Environmental analysis, corridor feasibility and alternatives analysis, market research, strategic planning, financial planning, implementation planning and safety and security
  • How best to accomplish
