Progress in Pompano: Removal of the Delineators
The City of Pompano Beach continues to analyze and make changes to improve the traffic flow on the Atlantic Boulevard and Dixie Highway corridor during phase one of the redevelopment of the future Downtown.
Based on the City’s consultant team’s analysis, the traffic delineators (plastic posts that are directing traffic to the new adjustments) will be taken down in a two phased approach. The initial phase will include the removal of delineators on Dixie Highway and West Atlantic Boulevard which will begin on Wednesday, March 9th. The second phase will occur in the very near future. All road work to make these adjustments will occur during the night-time hours. The purpose of the delineators was to help drivers safely navigate as adjustments are made to the new traffic pattern.
This streetscape improvement project is part of a large redevelopment plan of the new Downtown. This traffic corridor is the starting point of that plan. The redevelopment plan will create a vibrant and pedestrian friendly, urban, mixed-use Downtown by attracting a combination of business, technical, corporate, government, hospitality, education and cultural uses. Following a “Smart City” concept that considers the physical and technical integration of people and places, Downtown will become a hub of activity. The Community Redevelopment Agency and City of Pompano Beach own over 30 acres of prime real estate with I-95 frontage at the Atlantic Boulevard exit and are preparing to issue a solicitation for a master developer for the Downtown. The area was rezoned as a transit-oriented district enabling higher density in close proximity to transit operations.
