Message From Our Executive Director, Greg Stuart 

Welcome to another edition of Mobility Monday! It's the holiday season and whether you are shopping in brick-and-mortar stores or online, it's important to remember that we rely on our region's freight and logistics system to deliver. The system is comprised of highways, seaports, and railways here in the U.S. and abroad. Our roads are used by an ever-increasing number of delivery vans and trucks to transport items directly to our doorstep. As we look to the future, the Broward MPO is on the frontline exploring new and innovative means of delivering goods to our region. For example, drones could deliver items without taking up space on the road while self-driving and electric trucks could improve delivery times and ensure the things we buy are delivered in a safer and more sustainable way. New, cutting-edge micromobility delivery options like electric cargo bikes could eliminate large delivery trucks from congested city centers to make your commute easier and more efficient. These are just some of the things your MPO is working on to improve the quality of life in communities across Broward County and throughout the Southeast Florida region. We will continue to explore innovative ways to make the regional transportation framework better for all.

Coral Ridge Drive Mobility Improvement Project Completed in the City of Coral Springs

On November 18, infrastructure improvements along Coral Ridge Drive between Southgate Boulevard and Wyndham Circle were completed in the City of Coral Springs.

The City of Coral Springs, as the Project Sponsor, was awarded funding by the Broward MPO. In turn, FDOT District Four, designed and constructed the Coral Ridge Drive Mobility Improvement Project. The Broward MPO is investing over $300 million to create safer, healthier communities in Broward County.
