Below are current significant impacts to traffic within the City of Parkland (City). Entries on this page are known to the City and planned, this page does not include traffic impacts that result from traffic accidents or unexpected occurrences.
University Drive-Old Club Road Roundabout:
By June 2021, work is scheduled to begin on the roundabout that will be constructed to replace the three-way stop at the intersection of University Drive and Old Club Road adjacent to the entrance of the Parkland Golf and Country Club. At times this project will have a significant impact on traffic at that location including periodic single lane closures. We will provide as much advance notice of major traffic disruptions as we are able to—both on this page and on the City’s social media channels. This project is scheduled to be complete by the end of 2021. For more information on this project, visit: https://www.cityofparkland.org/roundabout.
Covered Bridge Park Expansion
The expansion of Covered Bridge Park is scheduled to begin in August 2021. When complete, this passive park will include open spaces, green space, places to walk, meet friends, and relax. In the meantime, work will begin with site visits in early August and construction work in mid-August. The project is expected to take approximately 10-12 months, understanding of course that significant weather events can impact work and completion. At times during park expansion there may be short-term, minor impacts on traffic in that area. As always, proceed with caution, reduce speed when necessary, and obey flag person commands.

Southwest 10th Street Connector:
The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) has considered all input regarding the connection from Florida’s Turnpike / Sawgrass Expressway to I-95 via Southwest 10th Street and has selected a preferred alternative which, according to FDOT, will provide “a limited access, high-speed connection” from the Sawgrass Expressway to I-95. When construction begins, it could impact commuters from Parkland to other parts of south Florida. For more information on this project, visit: https://www.fdot.gov/projects/sw10st/related.
