Rider Alert: Summerfest and A1A Construction Affect Sun Trolley Routes

Additionally, Route 11 along A1A is expected to have traffic delays due to construction. On July 28, the Florida Department of Transportation started construction on A1A, between Sunrise Blvd. (north) to NW 18 Street. During this period, the rightmost lane(s) will be closed. Because of slow-moving traffic, passengers should expect delays on Route 11.

There is no route detour necessary at this time. As the project progresses, BCT will be posting any route detour and or relocation of bus stops within the construction area as more information becomes available.

Reconstruction Work on A1A Begins July 28

Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) and its project team will begin work
the week of July 28, on the reconstruction of State Road A1A between Sunrise Boulevard
and NE 18th Street in Fort Lauderdale.

This area of A1A was severely eroded during Hurricane Sandy in October 2012 and
the Thanksgiving weekend storms the following month. In early 2013, FDOT made
emergency repairs in this area, including the installation of a new sheet pile
sea wall.

The $11.8 million reconstruction project includes:
* Constructing a wide beachfront promenade on the east side consisting of
a paver sidewalk
* Installing a decorative sea wall with accent lighting
* Constructing a raised median in front of Birch State Park
* Constructing median islands and left turn lanes in the residential section
* Installing a new underground drainage system
* Relocating underground utilities, adjusting manhole covers and restoring
beach showers
* Installing decorative, turtle-friendly pedestrian lighting on both sides
of A1A
* Installing signalized pedestrian crosswalks at Birch State Park, NE 15th
Court and NE 17th Street
* Installing new asphalt pavement on all lanes and parking spaces, new pavement
markings and highway signs

FDOT’s contractor is Russell Engineering, Inc. Construction oversight will be handled
by Calvin, Giordano & Associates, Inc. and FDOT.

Prior to construction starting, residents may see project staff videotaping the
exteriors of the privacy walls along A1A. Also, from July 28 until mid-August,
crews will be installing construction signs and concrete barrier walls that will
identify the work zones.

Areas that will be affected by construction during Phase One – July 28 through
December 2014:

  • East side of A1A between Sunrise Boulevard and NE 14 Court. Parking spaces and sidewalk will be closed on the east side of A1A in this construction zone. Beach access points will be restricted. Pedestrians and beach goers will not be allowed to cut through the work zone. Two-way traffic, bike lane, parking and sidewalk will be maintained on the west side of A1A.
  • West side of A1A between NE 14 Court and NE 18 Street. Parking spaces and sidewalk will be closed on the west side of A1A in this construction zone. Access will be maintained to side streets and driveways. Two-way traffic, bike lane, parking and sidewalk will be maintained on the east side of A1A.

The A1A Reconstruction Team thanks our project neighbors for their patience and
cooperation during this work. Should you have any questions or concerns about
this work, please feel free to contact FDOT’s Public Information Office at 954-777-4090.

All Aboard Florida Unveils Design Plans for Fort Lauderdale Station

Earlier today, Broward and Fort Lauderdale officials, All Aboard Florida reps and architects spoke about the upcoming passenger rail service. The original All Aboard plan called for service from Miami to Orlando, but the trains will stop only in Miami, Fort Lauderdale and West Palm Beach beginning in 2016.

“As we initiate this new service in South Florida,” says Mike Reininger, the president and CEO of All Aboard Florida. “Fort Lauderdale quite literally stands in the center of all of it.”

Fort Lauderdale is the second station for which the company has released design plans — they released Miami’s in May. The renderings unveiled today show a modern-looking, $30 million station. Besides having having a glass structure and a waiting area located over the tracks, Reininger promised expediency and availability to multiple coveted Lauderdale locations.

“Our Fort Lauderdale station will serve as a gateway to the city and will be an iconic destination with ready access to places to shop, dine, live and to connect,” he said. “We chose this site — here between NW 2nd street and Broward Blvd. — because it provides convenient connections to the sun trolley, to the Broward County transit system, to the coming Wave street car, a planned tri-rail station, as well as walkable access to the government center, to major businesses and offices, Las Olas Blvd. and Las Olas Riverfront and other points of interest including museums, historic districts and the Broward Center for the Performing Arts.”
