Design | FDOT District Four State Road (SR) 5/US–1 Resurfacing, Rehabilitation and Restoration Project

The Purpose:

The purpose of this project is to, among other improvements, mill, resurface and restripe the roadway, conduct safety improvements throughout the project limits and provide for roadway median landscape upgrades.

The Project:

The project limits are along SR 5/US–1 north of SE 17 Street to Broward Boulevard in Broward County, Florida. In addition to the aforementioned items, the project will add a five-foot cast-in-place raised concrete sidewalk with a 32-inch vertical traffic railing and pedestrian/bicycle railing on the Tarpon River Bridge, cover utility strips with concrete to create wider sidewalks at specific locations and implement video detection system and count-down pedestrian signals at the SR 5/US-1 and SE 7 Street intersection. In addition, pedestrian curb ramps not meeting Americans with Disabilities (ADA) criteria will be upgraded as well as all objects within the control zone will be relocated to improve the safety of the traveling public. Five unused driveways have been identified along the corridor. Identified driveways were investigated for removal through the “Driveway Closure Notification Form,” and only two will be removed. (One driveway is pending coordination). Offset median left turn lanes will be added at the SE 13 Street median opening and traffic separator width at the Ponce De Leon Drive median opening will be reduced to improve visibility and left turn head-on collisions as per the FDOT Safety Report. Concrete traffic separators will be added at SR–5/US–1 (Northbound/Southbound) gore areas for the Henry E. Kinney Tunnel (North/South) approaches to eliminate illegal turn movements and reconstruction will take place at the SE 9 Street SW quadrant and SE 6 Street NE quadrant curb return.

The Public:

As the public involvement coordinator for this project, MRG has afforded the community several opportunities to review project improvements, including public workshops, meetings and contacting project personnel. As an educational tool, we have developed project fact sheets that have been widely distributed throughout the corridor. The MRG team has worked with several local organizations including homeowners’ associations throughout the corridor. Several presentations have been coordinated by MRG, as well as meetings with City of Fort Lauderdale officials to ensure the community is well informed on the project.
