NOB HILL ROAD LIGHTING PROJECT

This project consists of design, permitting, and installation of Florida Power and Light (FPL) concrete poles and 400 watt high-pressure sodium lights from the city limits (just north of Heron Bay Boulevard) to the intersection of Loxahatchee Road and Nob Hill Road. The roadway is designated as a Broward County (County) roadway and requires approval from the County for permitting and construction. The design was performed by Hardesty and Hanover via a City General Engineering Services contract. The underground infrastructure for the project was offered to the public for competitive solicitations in December 2015 and was awarded to Weekley Asphalt Paving, Inc. in February 2016. Now that the underground work is complete the light poles and fixtures can be installed by FPL. The project is expected to be completed by mid-2017.

Lennar Homes is responsible for completing the underground infrastructure work for the segment between Hillsboro Boulevard and Loxahatchee Road while the City is responsible for the segment between Hillsboro Boulevard and north of Heron Bay Boulevard.  The City expects to receive permitted plans from the County in the early part of 2017.

PINE TRAILS PARK DESIGN-BUILD PLAYGROUND
An inclusive playground has been built adjacent to the pre-existing playground in Pine Trails Park.  Placing of sod in the areas around the playground by the end of April 2017 will complete the project.    
 
UNIVERSITY DRIVE LIGHTING
This project consists of design, permitting, and installation of Florida Power and Light (FPL) concrete poles and LED light fixtures from Holmberg Road north to Loxahatchee Road. The roadway has multiple ownership between Broward County and the City of Parkland (City). The City has solicited the services of Hardesty and Hanover, who designed the project. Construction has begun and is expected to be completed by the end of 2017.

LOXAHATCHEE ROAD LIGHTING
This project consists of design, permitting, and installation of Florida Power and Light (FPL) cobra head lighting fixtures on existing wooden poles from west of US 441/State Road 7 to the water conservation area. The project has been completed from Parkland Place west to the conservation area. The remaining portion from Parkland Place to US 441/State Road 7 will be completed at a later date.

LOXAHATCHEE ROAD IMPROVEMENTS
This is a large scale collaboration between the City of Parkland (City), Broward County, the Broward Metropolitan Planning Organization, and the Florida Department of Transportation (DOT) to reconstruct Loxahatchee Road (Lox Road) from US 441/State Road 7 to the water conservation area.  

City staff is working with these agencies to ensure the project stays on track for funding which originally was expected in fiscal year 2020-2021, but has been expedited at the City's insistence for funding in 2019.

DOT has solicited for the design which is expected to be awarded in the Summer of 2017 and completed in 2018.  Construction is anticipated to begin in late 2019 or early 2020.   



FIRE STATION EMERGENCY SIGNAL 
Exit points onto roadways pose visibility challenges for emergency responders as they embark to an emergency call.  Distracted or confused drivers compound the problem as fire trucks and paramedic trucks exit a fire station.  Effective emergency response requires safe, ready access to roadways to ensure timely response that maximizes the safety of Parkland.  Emergency traffic signals also enhance safety for motorists.  To this end, the City of Parkland (City) secured the services of Stanley Consultants, Inc. via a City General Engineering Services contract, to conduct a warrant study for the installation of emergency signals at all three fire stations in Parkland. Based on information learned from the study, Broward County granted permission to the City to design and construct two emergency signals. The proposed locations are:
  • University Drive at the Parkland Municipal Complex/Fire Station 97
  • Holmberg Road at Fire Station 42
The City completed the design phase in October 2016 and awarded the bid to Horse Power Electric for the construction in both locations.  Completion is expected by the end of 2017.
