Notice: Upcoming Improvements
Infrastructure Improvements Coming to Your Community
The City of Fort Lauderdale is working with Murphy Pipeline to install a new 42-inch sewer force main to upgrade infrastructure, create redundancy, enhance reliability, and improve services for our neighbors. The next portion of sewer main will be installed on Bayview Drive and NE 28 Avenue, between NE 21 Street and NE 29 Street. The work will be done using underground directional drilling, a process that will minimize impacts to streets, traffic, and neighbors, while helping to complete the project in less time.
The directional drilling for the second phase of work is expected to take approximately one month and may be extended if any unforeseen conditions arise. The contractor plans to mobilize the week of March 30, 2020 and continue construction through April. Work will take place from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., Monday through Friday.
During construction, the southbound lane of Bayview Drive will be closed from NE 29 to NE 27 and from NE 25 to NE 24 Street; and NE 28 Avenue will be closed in both directions from Bayview Drive to NE 21 Street. See map for detour routes.
Local access will be maintained between the closures on Bayview Drive. As the project progresses through the neighborhood, the contractor will work with neighbors to maintain access to individual properties.
Please follow posted signs and drive with caution in the area. We apologize for any inconvenience and thank you for your patience and cooperation as we strive to upgrade our sewer system as quickly as possible.

Brightline Continues PTC Field Integration Testing
MIAMI, Fl. (March 25, 2020) – Brightline is upgrading its existing corridor from Miami to West Palm Beach, conducting positive train control (PTC) field integration testing and implementing signalization updates along the rail corridor and at crossings. Brightline has completed all installation of infrastructure, including hardware and updated communication lines, and continues field testing on the 70-mile track between Miami and West Palm Beach. Brightline expects to operate in PTC revenue service demonstration (RSD) from Miami to West Palm Beach by third-quarter 2020 and is on track to meet the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) deadline of December 31, 2020.

Brightline has a full-time team in place overseeing PTC work, who came to Brightline from the freight industry, where they were responsible for implementing PTC on over 3000 miles of Class 1 railroad. The Brightline Public Affairs team continues to monitor community questions and concerns and provide timely updates to elected officials, community leaders, members of the news media and residents.

PTC work requires that trains be present along the corridor and that horns sound during off hours, including overnight. The following information, also available on the Brightline website, provides detailed locations and times for PTC work along the corridor.

    There have been several homeless people who camp at Chic Fil A every night. Also people living out of an suv. I do not feel safe taking my trash out at night and do not feel safe. Is there anything the police can do to remedy this? I’m not sure Chic Fil A even knows.

      If you do not feel safe, please call the police whenever you see the situation so they can address it while it is happening. We will pass along the information to our FLPD liaison officers at our next meeting. Thank you.
