Hillsboro Boulevard - Nob Hill Road Traffic Signal
Broward County (County) is responsible for the design, installation, and maintenance of all traffic signals on the County road system—including those located in Parkland. The traffic signal at the intersection of Nob Hill Road and Hillsboro Boulevard, as is the case with all County traffic signal projects, required a traffic volume threshold to initiate installation of a traffic signal. The City, with a focus on safety, expedited the Nob Hill Road - Hillsboro Boulevard traffic signal project by providing upfront funding and beginning the design even before the necessary traffic warrants were met (in anticipation that they would ultimately be met). The City’s efforts resulted in the design process being completed early. The City Commission awarded the contract for installation in September 2019. Since then, Broward County approved permits for the traffic signal, mast arms were ordered, fabricated, delivered, and installed beginning in April 2020. This work resulted in minor, periodic lane disruptions during non-peak hours. The bulk of the work on this project was scheduled for the Summer months of 2020 when school would not be in session. When the Coronavirus precipitated an early end to the school year, the City approved an acceleration of the project. The traffic signal became fully operational on July 29, 2020.
