NOB HILL ROAD LIGHTING PROJECT

Project consists of design, permitting, and installation of Florida Power and Light (FPL) concrete poles and 400 watt high pressure sodium luminaires (lighting fixtures) from the City Limits (just north of Heron Bay Boulevard) to the intersection of Loxahatchee Road and Nob Hill Road. The roadway is designated as a Broward County (“County”) roadway and requires approval from the County for permitting and construction. The design was performed by Hardesty and Hanover via a City General Engineering Services contract. The underground infrastructure for the project was offered to the public for competitive solicitations in December 2015 and was awarded to Weekley Asphalt Paving, Inc. in February 2016. Once the underground work is complete the lighting poles and fixtures will be installed by FPL. The project is expected to be completed by mid-2017.

Lennar Homes is responsible for completing the underground infrastructure work for the segment between Hillsboro Blvd. and Loxahatchee Rd. while the City is responsible for the segment between Hillsboro Blvd. and north of Heron Bay Blvd.  The City expects to receive permitted plans from the County in the early part of 2017.

PINE TRAILS PARK DESIGN-BUILD PLAYGROUND
An all-inclusive playground is being built and will connect to the existing playground. This is being done under a separate design-build contract that was awarded on June 1, 2016 to Playmore Recreational Products and Services.  Currently under construction, this project is expected to be completed in early 2017.  

UNIVERSITY DRIVE LIGHTING
This project consists of design, permitting, and installation of Florida Power and Light (FPL) concrete poles and LED light fixtures from Holmberg Road north to Loxahatchee Road. The roadway has multiple ownership between Broward County (County) and the City of Parkland (City). The City has solicited the services of Hardesty and Hanover, who designed the project. Construction has begun and is expected to be completed in Summer 2017.

LOXAHATCHEE ROAD LIGHTING
This project consists of design, permitting, and installation of Florida Power and Light (FPL) cobra head lighting fixture on existing wooden poles from west of the State Road 7 to the conservation area. The project has been completed from Parkland Place west to the conservation area. The remaining portion from Parkland Place to State Road 7 will be completed at a later date.

LOXAHATCHEE ROAD IMPROVEMENTS
This project consists of design, permitting, and reconstruction of the current Loxahatchee roadway from State Road 7 to the Conservation Area. The roadway is approximately six (6) miles long with shared ownership between the City of Parkland (City) and Broward County (County). The County owns from the north line of Section 35 to the west line of Section 19 within Township 47 South, Range 41 East. The remainder of the roadway (approximately 1.1 miles) is owned by the City. At the September 18, 2013 City Commission meeting, the City Commission approved Keith and Schnars design Alternative 3 concept for design and funding consideration. Design Alternative 3 consists of two 12-foot lanes separated by an 11-foot median. The alternate also includes a five-foot bike lane on the north section and a four-foot bike lane and a six-foot sidewalk on the south section of the right of way. Due to right-of-way restrictions on the City owned portion, a retaining wall may be required. The City is currently seeking partnership opportunity with the County to ensure a uniform project and to strengthen funding for the project. Due to the magnitude and scope of the project, the cost for completion presents challenging obstacles. To that end, both the City and County had applied for funding through the Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO). This project is on the MPO list for funding along with the Florida Department of Transportation, which is also offering assistance towards the completion of the project. City staff is working with these agencies to ensure the project stays on track for funding which originally was expected in the fiscal year 2020-21, but has been expedited at the City's insistent for funding in 2019. 

PARKLAND TENNIS CENTER AT QUIGLEY PARK
The City of Parkland (City), is currently constructing a new first class tennis facility at John H. Quigley Park, located at 7901 Parkside Drive. The new facility will have 12 clay tennis courts, one building with offices and restroom/locker facilities, one maintenance building, and a parking lot. The design was completed by Keith and Associates via a City General Engineering Services contract.
The project was offered to the public for competitive solicitations in November 2015 and was awarded on January 20, 2016 to West Construction, Inc. Six courts opened to league play only in September and the rest of the facility will open early in 2017.


FIRE STATION EMERGENCY SIGNAL
The exit point onto roadways pose visibility challenges for emergency responders. Distracted drivers only compound the problem for emergency responders trying to leave the fire station. The emergency responders deserve safe, ready access to roadways adjacent to the fire station. The signal will also preserve traffic safety for all motorist at the designated location. To this end, the City of Parkland secured the services of Stanley Consultants, Inc. via a City General Engineering Services contract, to conduct a warrant study for the installation of emergency signals at all three Fire Stations within the City. Based on the information provided in the study, Broward County granted permission to the City to design and construct two (2) emergency signals. The proposed locations are:
  • University Drive at City Municipal Complex Fire Station 97
  • Holmberg Road at Fire Station 42
The City completed the design phase in October 2016 and is currently in the bidding phase--with the bid scheduled for award in early 2017.
