Project Updates in the City of Parkland
ROUNDABOUT: HILLSBORO BOULEVARD-EVERGLADES WAY
The Falls at Parkland is a new community under development immediately west of Parkside Drive and immediately south of Lox Road. As a condition of developing the community, Ryan Homes / Parkland Centerline was required to extend Hillsboro Boulevard. The extension runs from the approximate northwestern corner of Terramar Park west along the south side of the Chabad of Parkland, intersects Parkside Drive at a four-way stop, and continues west into The Falls at Parkland. This extension permanently closed the intersection of Hillsboro Boulevard and Loxahatchee Road in January 2020. Along the stretch of Hillsboro Boulevard west of Parkside Drive is a roundabout at Hillsboro’s intersection with a new street, Everglades Way.

LOXAHATCHEE ROAD IMPROVEMENTS
The reconstruction of Loxahatchee Road is a large-scale collaboration between the City of Parkland, Broward County, the Broward Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO), and the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT). The project will span Loxahatchee Road from State Road 7 / U.S. Highway 441 to the water conservation area and, at this time, is expected to begin sometime in 2023. Learn about Loxahatchee Road improvements.
This project would provide a secondary storm water drainage system to allow for drainage during a large rain or storm event. This would help alleviate flooding that now occurs in The Ranches after a storm or heavy rain. The City of Parkland (City) had a survey conducted of the area and worked with North Springs Improvement District (NSID) on a model of the drainage system. NSID was unable to process the permitting for this area, so the City has designated this area as part of a citywide Storm Water Master Plan (SWMP). The SWMP evaluates the current City storm water level of service and provides recommendations for implementation of policies, strategies, and a prioritized improvement program that addresses the City’s current and future needs. This plan has met with delays and is anticipated to be complete by Summer 2022.
