Fort Lauderdale streetscape improvement project underway


Florida Construction News staff writer

The City of Fort Lauderdale is working with Weekley Asphalt Paving, Inc. to complete streetscape improvements along A1A from the Fort Lauderdale Beach parking lot entrance (near SE 5 Street) to Sunrise Boulevard. This project is expected to improve pedestrian lighting and safety and create a signature hardscape pattern at the intersection of A1A and Las Olas Boulevard.

The project includes:

  • Relocating existing palms to the curb to extend sidewalk area on both sides of A1A
  • Upgrading hardscape elements including colored, decorative concrete
  • Installing site furnishing elements including accent seating and bollards
  • Installing LED pedestrian lights along the west side of A1A that will provide amber-colored lighting during turtle nesting season and white lighting during the remainder of the year

Construction started Apr. 24 and is expected to be completed by the end of the year.
