LIBRARY EXPANSION PROJECT
The City of Parkland Library is currently housed in a 13,200 square foot facility at the Parkland Municipal Complex.  Work is underway to redesign the facility by adding a wing to the existing building.  The wing will add approximately 7,000 square feet to the program space.  This addition  will provide a separate space for children and families and a multi-purpose program area.  The City Commission awarded the design to the architectural firm of William Dacar Associates, Inc.  The design is currently underway and the project is scheduled to begin construction in April of 2018.
 
LOXAHATCHEE ROAD IMPROVEMENTS
The reconstruction of Loxahatchee Road (Lox) is a large-scale collaboration between the City of Parkland (City), Broward County, the Broward Metropolitan Planning Organization, and the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT).  The project will span Lox from US 441/State Road 7 (SR 7) to the water conservation area.

This project will, in effect, be a complete makeover of the road through its entire span.  Travel lanes will be wider, there will be bike lanes in both directions, a sidewalk along the south side of the road, and much of the roadway will have a landscaped median that will not only provide traffic calming, but will add a Parkland feel to the road.  Additionally, there will be street lights atop cement utility poles all the way from SR 7 to the west end of Lox.

The vision is to create a safe, bright aesthetically-pleasing passage from east to west in Parkland.  City staff is working with all involved agencies to ensure the project stays on track.  Originally funding was expected in fiscal year 2020-2021, but, at the City's prompting, it has been expedited for funding in 2019. 

FDOT has awarded the project design contract to Protean Design Group and a "kick-off" meeting with the full design team was held earlier this month.  The design is expected to be completed in 2018.  Construction is anticipated to begin in late 2019 or early 2020.
 
LOX ROAD SIDEWALK SECTION
Plans are in process to complete the portion of sidewalk running from the Lox Road/Hillsboro intersection to the eastern edge of the Chabad property.  Construction should begin later this year.

FIRE STATION EMERGENCY SIGNAL 
Exit points onto roadways pose visibility challenges for emergency responders as they embark to an emergency call.  Distracted or confused drivers compound the problem as fire trucks and paramedic trucks exit a fire station.  Effective emergency response requires safe, ready access to roadways to ensure timely response that maximizes the safety of Parkland.  Emergency traffic signals also enhance safety for motorists.  To this end, the City of Parkland (City) 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 in Parkland. Based on information learned from the study, Broward County granted permission to the City to design and construct two emergency signals. The locations are: 

  • University Drive at the Parkland Municipal Complex/Fire Station 97
  • Holmberg Road at Fire Station 42
 Construction is complete and the emergency lights are currently operating in a "testing" phase.
