The Broward Metropolitan Planning Organization (Broward MPO) has developed a consensus building initiative with the communities along the SW 10th Street corridor to discuss the future of the corridor between Florida’s Turnpike and I-95. The purpose of this initiative is to identify concerns on current and future conditions and to develop consensus on potential near and long-term transportation improvements.
Traffic volume along the SW 10th Street corridor between Florida’s Turnpike and I-95 has consistently increased over the past 20 years and is expected to continue to grow, compounding congestion and noise. Previous proposals for improvements on SW 10th Street have focused on moving vehicles with little consideration for livability issues that address the concerns of adjacent residents. For the last 20 years, there has been no agreement on what to do with SW 10th Street. As a result, no improvements are funded in the Broward MPO 2040 Long Range Transportation Plan known as Commitment 2040.
Meaningful public engagement is a requirement of comprehensive transportation planning for transportation projects. The Broward MPO Board directed the Team to reach out to impacted communities along the corridor in order to identify issues and build consensus on alternative(s) that improve the safety, livability and mobility of those impacted communities.
