Message From Our Executive Director, Greg Stuart 

Welcome to the latest edition of our Mobility Monday newsletter. This week, we're shining a light on our Complete Streets and other Localized Initiatives Program. The MPO’s Complete Streets and other Localized Initiatives Program (CSLIP) provides funding for small local transportation projects that will improve the safety and mobility of all transportation users in Broward. This competitive grant program funds projects such as complete streets projects, traffic calming and intersection improvements, ADA upgrades, mobility hubs, and technology advancements such as transit signal priority and traffic control devices. We're holding a workshop on August 24 where you can get more information. I hope to see you there!

Brightline Signal Testing Continues in Broward County

Brightline is upgrading track and signal systems through railroad crossings in Dania and Hollywood in Broward County until 3 p.m., Thursday, August 4. During this work, flaggers will be present at these crossings and drivers can expect additional wait times. Horns will sound even in quiet zones. This includes all trains, including Brightline and freight trains. This is in adherence to the federal regulation that states train horns must be sounded if workers are present or work is occurring in or near the right of way. Brightline is reminding the public, pedestrians, motorists, and cyclists to make safe choices around trains and crossings, obey all traffic laws around crossings, never stop on the tracks, and don’t drive around crossing gates! Remain alert and aware when near railroad tracks and only cross the tracks at a railroad crossing. The safety message is simple: look, listen, live.  Visit the Brightline website to learn more.
