Margate Boulevard Streetscape Project

The Margate Community Redevelopment Agency completed the Margate Blvd. Streetscape project in 2008. These improvement included a new “roundabout” at the intersection of Margate Boulevard and 58th Avenue, along with drainage improvements, new lighting, pedestrian crosswalks, on-street parking, and new and improved sidewalks. All of these improvements have made Margate Boulevard a safer roadway for drivers and pedestrians.

Coconut Creek Parkway | Education Corridor

This area is roughly a two-mile section of Coconut Creek Parkway between the Florida Turnpike and State Road 7. The plan provides a pedestrian and bicycle plan for the corridor, and will suggest possible road improvements and traffic calming strategies to accommodate all modes of transportation along the corridor.

UPCOMING: Coconut Creek Parkway Streetscape Project

The Margate Community Redevelopment Agency (MCRA) will be moving forward with plans in January, 2013 to install a landscaped median along Coconut Creek Parkway between U.S. 441/State Road 7 and Banks Road. The median improvements are part of the MCRA's Redevelopment Plan and part of the joint effort with Coconut Creek on the Education Corridor project. The work on the median is set to commence in January, 2013, and it is expected to be completed by Spring 2013. Total cost of the project is anticipated to be $725,000 and it will be funded by the MCRA.

The project will include:

  • Installation of a curbed median with landscaping and irrigation
  • Installation of decorative crosswalks

Once the median and crosswalk portion of the project is completed, Broward County will resurface Coconut Creek Parkway as part of their routine maintenance of County roadways.

UPCOMING: Copans Road Landscaping Project

In 2013, the MCRA will be landscaping the medians of Copans Road from State Road 7 east to the City border with Coconut Creek. This landscaping project is part of the CRA's Redevelopment Plan to focus on improving the Copans Road corridor. This project comes on the heels of the City completing the repaving and landscaping of Royal Palm Blvd. just west of State Road 7.

COMPLETED: Landscaping of Atlantic Boulevard

The landscaping of the medians on Atlantic Boulevard from State Road 7 east to the City border with Coconut Creek has been completed. This landscaping project was part of the Margate Community Redevelopment Agency's (MCRA) efforts to improve the attractiveness of the major corridors throughout the City. The cost of the project was $136,000. Wal-Mart generously donated $25,000 towards the project and the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) contributed $49,000 to the project. The remaining balance was paid for by the MCRA.

COMPLETED: State Road 7 Project

The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) completed work on their 3R Project of State Road 7 in late 2011. The 3R project which stands for Resurfacing, Restoration and Rehabilitation begins at the C-14 Canal and runs north to the Sample Road overpass. This project was part of FDOT's routine maintenance of State roads which occurs every 15 years. In addition to the road resurfacing project, FDOT installed significant landscape upgrades to the roadway.

Upgrades included:

  • A new irrigation system that can use alternative sourced water.
  • Installation of new brick pavers which border the landscaping inside the medians.
  • Removal of the solid concrete medians and the installation of landscaping inside them.
  • Installation of additional trees and hedges throughout the corridor.

In addition to the above upgrades, the project included the installation of landscaping in front of Northwest Medical Center. This was the last portion of State Road 7 in Margate that needed to be landscaped. State Road 7 is now completely landscaped in the City of Margate and provides an attractive Main Street in the heart of Margate. The project costs were covered by several entities.

The State Road 7 Collaborative Project provided $220,852 to the project. $25,000 was funded by a Broward Beautiful Grant. $160,000 came from FDOT's Resurfacing Project Funds with the balance of $639,000 being provided by the Margate CRA.
