Welcome

The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) has begun a Project Development and Environment (PD&E) study to continue the efforts of the Broward Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) to address local access along SW 10th Street, improve safety, and provide a connection between I-95, Sawgrass Expressway and Florida’s Turnpike.

This PD&E Study will evaluate two facilities within the SW 10th Street corridor. One facility will address a regional connection between adjacent Strategic Intermodal System (SIS) facilities; the Turnpike / Sawgrass Expressway and I-95. Improving this linkage will improve mobility and contribute to the economic vitality of Southeast Florida. The other roadway facility to be evaluated will be a lower-speed, local roadway to address business and community mobility needs. An improved local SW 10th Street facility will address existing operational and safety deficiencies along SW 10th Street between Florida’s Turnpike/Sawgrass Expressway and SR 9/I-95. Multimodal, pedestrian and bicycle features will also be included. The PD&E study involves evaluating various alternatives and comparing the engineering, social, and environmental effects of each alternative. The Community Oversight Advisory Team (COAT) representatives will continue to be a key asset to the PD&E study and their recommendations will be evaluated during the study.

What?
A study to evaluate two roadway facilities in the corridor to address a regional connection between the Turnpike / Sawgrass Expressway and I-95 and a local SW 10th Street roadway to address community mobility needs. These facilities will increase capacity, eliminate various existing operational and safety deficiencies along SW 10th Street between Florida’s Turnpike/Sawgrass Expressway and SR 9/I-95 and address multimodal needs along the corridor.

 

Where?
SW 10th Street from Florida’s Turnpike/Sawgrass Expressway to SR 9/I-95

 

Who?
The Florida Department of Transportation

 

Why?
SW 10th Street from Florida’s Turnpike to I-95 is a missing link in the existing and planned regional express lanes network. An improved local facility is also needed to address community and business traffic as well as provide for pedestrians and bicyclists.

 

When?
Virtual Webinars and website updates are planned for this spring and will provide more detailed project information with the expectation of a Public Hearing this fall.
