In 2018, Broward County voters approved a one percent sales tax that established a dedicated local funding source for transportation improvements, including transit operations and maintenance. As a result, the FDOT and the project partners decided to focus on the 3.8-mile Broward Boulevard corridor as one of the first potential pieces of a larger regional system. The purpose of the Broward Boulevard Premium Transit Study is to provide a premium transit service that will improve mobility, offer an alternative to single-occupant vehicles, and provide convenient access to major destinations in central Broward County.
The Broward Boulevard corridor has many transportation opportunities as well as many challenges. The following is a sampling of the corridor issues that will be considered as a part of the BBPT Study project development activities:
- Recurring congestion on Broward Boulevard,
- Recurring congestion on segments of I-95,
- High capacity transit service being predominately north-south and not adequately addressing east-west travel,
- Lack of access and mobility within the corridor constraining economic development and redevelopment, and
Anticipated population and employment growth expected to exacerbate the problems described above.
