The Broward Metropolitan Planning Organization and Broward County Government are pleased to announce an award from the United States Department of Transportation (USDOT) for the maximum $5 million grant for the Safe Streets and Roads For All (SS4A) Action Plan. The Safety Action Plan is a joint commitment between the Broward MPO and Broward County to develop county-wide implementation strategies to prevent roadway deaths and serious injuries with an emphasis on underserved communities. This award was made possible by leveraging a local match of $1.25 million from Broward County.
The SS4A Action plan is the first step in identifying problems and solutions to make Broward safer for everyone. We want to find creative ways to fund and implement low-cost, high-impact solutions. The Broward MPO looks forward to working with our partners on various elements of the Action Plan and anticipates participation in data gathering, the development of alternatives and recommendations, and the prioritization of strategies to address safety throughout all areas of Broward County.
The Action Plan will yield three main deliverables: data management, policy recommendations, and a prioritized list of capital improvement projects. Once the Action Plan is complete, the prioritized list of projects will be eligible for funding from a variety of sources, including federal discretionary grants and local funding. Because of limited federal funding, some projects will need to pursue funding through local Capital Improvement Plans, Broward County Surtax, other MPO programs, or as private developer contributions.
The Broward MPO looks forward to working with our partners to achieve the goals of the Action Plan.
