DUE TO THE FPL DISRUPTION, THE REMAINDER OF THE MAY 22ND OVERSIGHT BOARD MEETING AGENDA WILL BE INCLUDED ON THE JUNE 4TH MEETING AGENDA.
County staff is currently working on a collaborative 5-year Plan due July 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.
500+ municipal-requested capital projects included in the original 2018 project-based plan approved by voters have been ranked and prioritized by surtax-funded staff at the MPO. Projects were included on the May 22nd Oversight Board meeting agenda and will also be included on the June 4th meeting agenda. The County recently finalized evaluation criteria and opened an application portal for rehabilitation and maintenance municipal-requested projects also contained in the original plan. These projects are currently being evaluated and ranked. They will also be included on the June 4th Oversight Board meeting agenda. These municipal-requested capital projects and municipal-requested rehabilitation and maintenance projects will be included on the June 16th County Commission meeting agenda for final approval for Cycle 1 funding. Up to $122.7M was included in the original financial plan for FY2020 municipal capital, rehabilitation and maintenance projects, and Community Shuttles.
In addition, roadway improvements such as fiber optic installations, traffic signal upgrades and synchronization, lighting and drainage projects, plus numerous transportation-related studies, Broward County Transit service enhancements, and data and technology research are in full swing.
Below is a sampling of transportation-related projects underway.
