A number of the City's Capital Projects are making progress toward completion.
Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Projects
The City just completed the 45th and 46th year CDBG projects. A new stormwater drainage system was installed along portions of NW 24th Street and NW 8th Avenue, just east of Powerline Road. The final phase of the project (47th year) will be starting in the spring and include new stormwater drainage along portions of NW 26th Street.
Construction of the City’s first Broward County Surtax Program project has commenced. This project is the installation of landscaping and irrigation along Wilton Drive. A second project, the redesign of NE 26th Street between Five Points and the City limits to the east, has also begun. This project will involve public input prior to any plan finalization but will include the widening of existing sidewalks. A third surtax-funded construction project will also be starting this spring. Raised intersections will be constructed along NE 15th Avenue, south of NE 26th Street. Additionally, sidewalks will be installed along the south side of NE 24th Street, west of NE 15th Avenue.
Water, Wastewater & Stormwater Infrastructure
In line with the City’s 2020 Water, Wastewater & Stormwater Integrated Master Plan, infrastructure projects for 2022 include sliplining sewer mains in several lift station collection basins, currently in-progress for the Lift Station #10 basin on the City’s east side. The City is also beginning engineering design phases for water distribution upgrades on NW 29th Street and NE 30 Court, as well as engineering design for drainage in the 1400 Block of NE 24th Street and 2200 Block of NW 2nd Avenue.
