The meeting will be an open house with representatives from the FDOT available to answer questions. There will be no formal presentation. Maps, drawings and other information will be available.
The project’s primary objective is to provide continuous dedicated bike lanes on both sides of NW 19th Street between State Road 7(SR7) and Powerline Road. From SR7 to NW 29th Avenue and from NW 24th Avenue to NW 15th Avenue, 4-foot-wide bike lanes will be provided by reducing the width of the traffic lanes; existing 12-foot-wide lanes will be reduced to 10-foot-wide via pavement milling, resurfacing, restriping, and isolated widening. From 29th Avenue to NW 24th Avenue and from NW 15th Avenue to Powerline Road, 5-foot-wide bike lanes with 3-foot-wide buffers will be provided by converting the outside traffic lane to a buffered bike lane through pavement milling, resurfacing, and restriping.
In addition, this project will also retrofit a number of existing curb ramps to meet current Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requirements, upgrade bicycle signing and pavement markings and install new pedestrian count down signals at all signalized intersections.
Public participation is solicited without regard to race, color, national origin, age, sex, religion, disability or family status. Persons who require special accommodations under the Americans with DisabilitiesAct or persons who require translation services (free of charge) should contact Bing Wang, P.E., FDOT District Project Manager, at 954-777-4406 at least seven days prior to the meeting.
