Two public meetings are scheduled next week for residents to learn more about the upcoming Northwest 29th St. Complete Streets Project.
The Florida Department of Transportation has scheduled a virtual meeting for Monday, April 25 at 6 p.m. followed by an in-person meeting on Tuesday, April 26 at 6 p.m. at the Woman’s Club of Wilton Manors, 600 Northeast 21st Court.
The project’s proposed improvements include repaving the street, repairing a damaged sidewalk and constructing a new sidewalk to fill gaps, adding green-painted bike lanes, modifying drainage structures, adding signs and pavement markings and upgrading pedestrian crossing signals at both intersections.
Northwest 29th St. connects SR 845/Powerline Rd. and Andrews Ave. with 100 single-family homes and five businesses facing the corridor.
Construction on the $1.5 million project begins in winter, FDOT officials said, and is expected to take one year. Work will be done in phases with no construction allowed at night or on weekends.
For more information, contact Humberto Arrieta, project manager at (954) 777-4152.
