Progress in Pompano: Atlantic Blvd and Dixie Hwy Streetscape Improvements

Discover Pompano Beach's Future Downtown

We CARE about your safety as a motorist and pedestrian.

New Downtown

The Optimized Atlantic Blvd / Dixie Hwy Improvement Project will:

  • provide a safer commute
  • only modify one through-lane on westbound Atlantic Blvd, all other lanes will remain open
  • create wider landscaped medians, sidewalks and buffers
  • increase the length of the lanes on Atlantic Blvd turning left on Cypress Rd so cars don’t block through traffic

... and with Minimal Impact to Motorists

  • no increase to the eastbound commute
  • adding approximately only two minutes westbound during rush hour
  • adding approximately only 30 seconds westbound at other times

New Traffic Pattern

Safety Information

The section of Atlantic Boulevard between NW 6th Avenue and NE 7th Avenue had approximately 122 accidents in 2021. Using FDOT accident and analysis procedures, this section of Atlantic Boulevard is considered a high crash location compared to other similar roadways in South Florida. Atlantic Boulevard has twice the number of accidents it should have. Therefore, there is currently a safety problem on this roadway. The proposed improvements of Atlantic Boulevard will improve safety along this high-accident roadway.
