While the Broward MPO team enjoys and values in-person meetings with the public, our members and our various partners, we recognize we must do everything possible to limit the potential spread of COVID-19 within our region. In accordance with the directives of our state and national governments and with concern for the health of Broward MPO staff and all those that we serve, our physical offices will be closed and our team will telecommute beginning Monday, March 16, 2020 and ending on Tuesday, March 31, 2020 (subject to reassessment on March 30th).

If you have a meeting scheduled with an MPO team member please expect an email or call from the meeting organizer with a dial in or video conference invite. We will be online and available via email and phone and will continue planning and funding Broward’s transportation as we work remotely.

We appreciate your understanding during this unprecedented situation, and we will be prepared to modify our plans when and if additional information and guidance becomes available. We encourage the public, our members, and our various partners, to utilize social distancing, be vigilant, stay safe, and consider what steps you can take to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. If you need to access any resources related to COVID-19, we encourage you to check the Centers for Disease Control website and the http://www.floridahealth.gov/diseases-and-conditions/COVID-19/
