FDOT to hold community meeting for the Central Broward East-West Transit Study

The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) will hold a community meeting to discuss transit services as part of the Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) on the Central Broward East-West Transit Analysis in Broward County, Florida. The meeting will be held:

Saturday, March 27, 2010

11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.

The purpose of this study is to provide high-quality, high-capacity transit service on an east-west axis in central Broward County to connect the developing western side of the county to the highly populated coastal area. The proposed service extends from the Sawgrass Mills/Bank Atlantic Center in western Broward County to downtown Fort Lauderdale and the Fort Lauderdale–Hollywood International Airport in eastern Broward County.

This meeting will serve as a forum for discussing the possible benefits of improved transit service in the community. The study team will present information regarding the proposed route and possible station areas along State Road 7 (from I-595 to Broward Boulevard) and along Broward Boulevard (from State Road 7 to I-95). Information regarding routes and vehicles, as well as the environmental impact statement process, can be found on the project website:
