Loakl News 040323

The City of Oakland Park received the 2023 People’s Choice Award for the Best Complete Streets Project in the tri-county area for the Prospect Road Complete Streets Project at the 10th Annual Safe Streets Summit. The project was chosen as the best of thirteen projects across the tri-county area by the attendees of the two-day conference. The Broward Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO), the Miami-Dade Transportation Planning Organization, and the Palm Beach Transportation Planning Agency hosted the summit.  

The Prospect Road Complete Streets Project is a collaborative effort by the City of Oakland Park, the Florida Department of Transportation, Broward County, the Broward MPO, and the Cities of Fort Lauderdale and Tamarac to improve the Prospect Road Corridor. The project included the installation of dedicated bicycle lanes, a lane reduction from six lanes to four lanes from Dixie Highway to Commercial Boulevard, and a reduced speed limit west of NW 10th Avenue. The City implemented the roadway improvement project to reduce speeding, enhance safety, and improve corridor access and traffic signal timing. 

“The City of Oakland Park is thrilled that our peers have recognized our Prospect Road Complete Streets project as a premier transportation initiative in the South Florida region. We are proud of the enhancements we’re creating with our partners to make our community a safer and more desirable place through thoughtful streetscapes,” said Brynt Johnson, Director of Engineering and Building Services.
