The Highway and Bridge Maintenance Division consists of 138 management, administrative, supervisory, clerical and skilled trade personnel, all of whom are committed to serving the residents of Broward County with excellence in maintaining and improving County roadways and their components as well as the operation and maintenance of County draw bridges and the control of mosquitos countywide.
Asphalt Milling & Re-surfacing
Fixing street hazards such as potholes and dips is one of our priorities. Crews identify such problems through inspections as well as resident reports. Last year, more than 4,300 square yards of asphalt was used on County street repairs.
Highway and Bridge Maintenance maintains approximately 1,280 lane miles of asphalt roadway. Crews constantly monitor our streets to ensure they are safe and structurally sound for Broward County motorists.
Efforts are underway to make Broward County a more pedestrian friendly place. This involves adding more sidewalks and keeping sidewalks in good condition.
Broward County Highway and Bridge Maintenance is responsible for more than 400 linear miles of sidewalk adjacent to County owned roadways.
Curbs and Ramps Our ADA program is on track to improve curb ramps all over Broward County, providing for safe and easy use by all of our residents and visitors.
Sidewalk Repair Last year, we repaired 20,500 square yards of sidewalks along Broward County streets. These efforts greatly contribute to making Broward County a pedestrian friendly place.
Grind and Epoxy As an alternative to tearing up sidewalks, in some cases, grinding them will restore them to a safe condition. If they are cracked or chipped, then, the application of epoxy will strengthen them. The Division has two full time crews promoting the Grind & Epoxy Program.
Before the first bridge spanned the New River in Fort Lauderdale, residents and visitors crossed the waterway on a ferry. Learn about the Andrews Avenue Bridge history here.
