The City of Hollywood is applying to the Broward Metropolitan Planning Organization’s Cycle 8, Complete Streets And Other Localized Initiative Program (CSLIP) for two Traffic Calming And Bicycle/Pedestrian Improvement Projects. The 2024 Cycle 8 CSLIP Project Application Window is currently open and successful applications must demonstrate “community support” for the proposed projects. The projects identified are as follows:

Polk Street Traffic Calming Project from North 26th Avenue to Dixie Highway will consist of repurposing one Vehicle Lane to slow down Traffic. The re-purposed lane will be re-configured into either one Bi-Directional Buffered Bicycle Lane (Option A) or two Multi-Purpose Trails (Option B). The project will also include: Improved Sidewalks, Crosswalks, ADA Upgrades and New Landscaping.

West Park Road Traffic Calming Project between North Park Road and North 56th Avenue will consist of repurposing one Eastbound/Westbound Lane to slow down Traffic.
