BROWARD COUNTY, Fla. – Broward County’s Highway and Bridge Maintenance Division will be installing and improving Complete Streets elements on Southwest Fourth Avenue between State Road 84 and Southwest Ninth Street beginning Monday, April 21, and concluding on or before October 17, barring any unforeseen conditions or weather delays.
The project entails adding a bike lane as well as repairing the existing sidewalks and curb ramps on the east side of Southwest Fourth Avenue. By relocating the existing curb and gutter toward the west, the green area available for the roots of established trees currently growing along the pavement will be enhanced.
Driveway modifications will be necessary, and residential access to some driveways may be temporarily affected for one or two days. During construction, traffic on northbound Southwest Fourth Avenue will be temporarily restricted to one lane. Both southbound lanes on Southwest Fourth Avenue will remain open during construction.
The Complete Streets Program being implemented in Broward County will lead to safer streets designed for everyone, whether young or old, on foot or a bus, bicycling or in a car, regardless of age or ability. Complete Streets are roadways designed and constructed for all modes of transportation – automobiles, buses, bicycles and pedestrians.
