The Transportation Improvement Plan for Fiscal Year 2020 shows the efforts planned or underway to ensure acceptable levels of service and safe driving conditions are maintained in the City. The City’s Traffic Management Team meets monthly to address issues pertaining to the safe and efficient use of the roadway network. Projects include traffic calming, road resurfacing, turn lanes at intersections, as well as pedestrian and bicycle infrastructure improvements. The TMT will investigate a pilot project to allow dockless scooters within the city limits.
In Fiscal Year 2020, the City will work with Broward County and the Broward Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) to maximize the delivery of transportation infrastructure projects provided through the Transportation Surtax passed by voters in November 2018. In addition, with the completion of the Downtown Coral Springs Mobility Hub Master Plan, the City will work with the MPO to identify and seek funding for infrastructure projects for the Downtown Local Activity Center.
The City will continue working with Broward County on pedestrian signal improvements to enhance mobility and connectivity, including the installation of audible pedestrian detectors at three intersections with high levels of pedestrian activity. Broward County is planning several improvements including updated traffic signal synchronization and the installation of new mast arms with pedestrian countdown signals.
City staff will work with the MPO and the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) on the following efforts:
• Implement projects that improve regional connectivity, including the initiative to build the Sawgrass Expressway Connector to I-95
• Expand University Drive to six lanes north of NW 40th Street
• Widen Wiles Road east of University Drive to six lanes
• Advance multi-modal initiatives along Rock Island Road, Coral Ridge Drive, and Turtle Creek Drive
City staff will continue to monitor development within the Downtown LAC (Local Activity Center) to determine traffic impacts of new development as well as the ongoing development within the “Wedge” area of Parkland. Also in Fiscal Year 2020, $33,000 is being requested where $22,000 will be used to replace two temporary rubber speed cushions with concrete on Shadow Wood Boulevard. Additional funding is requested for the repair of speed cushions and maintaining the thermoplastic pavement markings and signage to improve the safety and visibility of all traffic calming locations throughout the City.
Also in Fiscal Year 2021, $30,000 is being requested to be used with existing funds to replace one temporary rubber speed cushions with concrete on Shadow Wood Boulevard and replacement of temporary cushions for projects at NW 39th Court, NW 21st Street and NW 48th Street until these cushions can be replaced with permanent cushions in subsequent years. Additional funding is requested for the repair of speed cushions and maintaining the thermoplastic pavement markings and signage to improve the safety and visibility of all traffic calming locations throughout the City. Operating costs include labor for the installation and repair of the speed cushions.
This initiative is an "ongoing" initiative. The budget listed is for one year. The budget for subsequent years will be approved by the City Commission during the budget process.
This quarter, the Traffic Management Team discussed 16 public inquiries and completed 8 traffic studies. Further, the team worked to submit two Surtax projects along NW 40th Street and Coral Hills Drive. Staff was informed that both projects were considered ineligible for funding through the Mobility Advancement Program. The team also submitted an Asphalt Art application for the intersection of Coral Hills Drive and NW 31st Court.
