What’s Really Happening on Atlantic Blvd & Dixie Highway
Thank you to everyone who contacted the City asking for the facts about the current road construction and #ProgressinPompano. Unfortunately, local social media sites are filled with misinformation and half-truths. To bring clarity, we have created a FAQ sheet based upon your questions, and we will continue to update this information.
The most common question is related to lane reductions. The FACT is: NO lanes will be removed on Dixie Highway and only ONE westbound thru lane on Atlantic Boulevard will be removed, ONLY from Cypress to 6th, in order to optimize traffic flow and safety for everyone. (A more detailed response is furnished in the FAQ's.)
During construction, there will be temporary lane closures to accommodate the work. But this does not reflect the final vision.
If you’ve ever remodeled anything in your home, you know construction is never easy and to accommodate the work, you must make adjustments. As a City, we are creating a safer roadway and a signature entranceway to our new Downtown. This will take time, but the results will bring decades of positive economic impact to our community.
We appreciate your patience and sharing these facts with your family and friends.
