The Broward MPO selected NE 15th Avenue between NE 11th Street and NE 13th Street to be implemented as the pilot project for 2022. This project is prioritized in the City's Neighborhood Mobility Masterplan (2015-2025) for Lake Ridge.
The primary components of the quick-build project are intersection improvements, wayfinding and informational signage, traffic calming features, crosswalks with decorative surface treatments and upgrading the existing bike lanes to protected bike lanes. The project will be reversible and adjustable according to the needs of the community. The City of Fort Lauderdale is also currently pursuing multiple funding sources to enable permanent improvements on this corridor.

Over the next several months, the project will be evaluated to see what works and where there is opportunity of improvement for a future, long-term solution to the street. Pedestrian and bicyclist counts are being conducted to evaluate the use of the corridor, as well as speed data. A survey will be conducted to collect feedback from the community to evaluate the effectiveness of the project. To access the survey CLICK HERE.
