District 4 aims to deploy technology solutions to mitigate crashes and hazards at railroad crossings by reducing the number of vehicles stopped on railroad tracks. The system will be composed of queue detection systems, highlighted signs, and connected vehicle (CV) components to provide drivers with warning alerts of upcoming traffic queues. Providing advanced warning is likely to reduce secondary crashes and improve mobility and safety. The following five (5) Railroad (RR) Crossings locations were identified by FDOT for this pilot project: 1. Okeechobee Boulevard (SR 704) 2. Hollywood Boulevard (SR 820) 3. Hallandale Beach Boulevard (SR 858) 4. Commercial Boulevard (SR 870) 5. Forest Hill Boulevard (SR 882). Please note locations are subject to change as we move forward with design.
