Traffic Calming: Proposed Neighborhood Project in Hollywood

October 7, 2021

The primary purpose of this project is to slow vehicular traffic to improve overall safety and allow people of all ages and abilities to travel safely

The City of Hollywood is applying for a grant to install traffic calming measures, such as speed tables and traffic circles, at identified, high traffic locations across the City. The primary purpose of this project is to slow vehicular traffic to improve overall safety and allow people of all ages and abilities to safely travel to and from their destinations, including schools and retail locations in the community. The grant process, in part, requires “community support” for the project. The City is offering a number of online options where you can lend your support for the project:

CURRENT LOCATION CONDITIONS

• In recent years, the city has installed over 252 traffic calming devices, primarily speed tables or speed humps.

• The need for additional traffic calming is primarily due to growth and requests by residents to control the volume of traffic and/or speed on neighborhood streets.

• Construct 45 speed tables
• Construct 13 roundabouts
• Install 9 electronic feedback signs
• Construct various lane and intersection improvements

These locations have been identified for the proposed traffic circles and other traffic calming devices:
• Harrison Street from S. 13th Ave. to Intracoastal Waterway
• Johnson Street from N. 9th Ave. to N. 14th Ave.
• N. 40th Avenue from W. Park Rd. to Sheridan St.
