An update from the Florida Department of Transportation ( FDOT) 
Sheridan Street Bridge



Thank you for your interest in the FDOT SR 822/Sheridan Street Bridge Rehabilitation Project. Public safety is FDOT’s top priority and we appreciate your patience as we continue to coordinate with local partners and the contractor to deliver a high-quality facility. Due to ongoing supply chain issues with some of the new electrical and mechanical bridge components, the full bridge closure period will be extended through October 15, 2022, to allow for the completion of the bridge rehabilitation. Additionally, weather has delayed some exterior operations such as painting of the steel as work is shut down during lightning, heavy winds, and rain. The Department is expediting the remaining scope of work and the contractor has committed crews to work around-the-clock to reopen the bridge as soon as possible.  The Department is committed to delivering a safe and successful project to the community as quickly and safely as possible. 

Thank you,

Tropical Storm Warning in effect for Hollywood

Tropical Storm Warning in effect for Hollywood

The City of Hollywood is under a Tropical Storm Warning

The National Hurricane Center (NHC) continues to monitor the development of a tropical system northeast of the Yucatan Peninsula. The NHC is now forecasting the storm will become Tropical Storm Alex by 1 p.m. on Friday.  South Florida and the Hollywood area are now under a Tropical Storm Warning, which means tropical storm conditions are expected somewhere within the warning area within 36 hours.  The system is moving in a northeasterly direction into the warm waters of the northwestern Caribbean Sea and eventually the Gulf of Mexico.  On the forecast track, the system should move across the southeastern Gulf of Mexico through Friday night, and then move across the southern and central portions of the Florida Peninsula on Saturday.  

Regardless of tropical development, the Hollywood area is under a flood watch advisory and is expected to experience periods of heavy rain and wind gusts today and over the weekend. With ground saturation following recent heavy rains, there is a potential for localized street flooding, particularly in low-lying areas and portions of Hollywood east of US-1 between Pembroke Road and Sheridan Street. Beach erosion is also a possibility. Residents are encouraged to monitor trusted news providers like the National Weather Service Miami and the National Hurricane Center for the latest information. 

Parking Fees Suspended in City-operated Garages
To assist Hollywood residents who live in low-lying areas, from 10:00 a.m. on Friday, June 3 to noon on Sunday, June 5, parking fees will be waived in the four City garages. Hollywood residents can park their personal vehicles in the garages on a first come, first served basis beginning at 10:00 a.m. today.  Proof of Hollywood residency will be required.  No commercial trucks or fleet vehicles will be allowed.  All vehicles must be parked legally in marked spaces, any vehicles parked illegally or blocking other vehicles will be ticketed and could be towed. 

The garages are located here:

Hollywood Beach:

  • Garfield Garage – 300 Connecticut Street
  • Nebraska Garage – 327 Nebraska Street

 
Downtown Hollywood:

  • Van Buren Garage – 251 S 20th Ave
  • Radius Garage – 251 N 19th Ave


Pumps Deployed and Storm Drains Cleared 
To prepare for the impacts of significant rainfall, the City of Hollywood Public Utilities Department has been working to clear storm drains, check stationary pumps and deploy auxiliary pumps in areas prone to flooding.  Residents who are able can assist by ensuring that storm drains near their homes remain cleared throughout the weekend. 

Flood Safety Tips

  • Call 911 if flood damage to your home has created an emergency situation such as a fire.
  • Motorists should not attempt to drive through flooded areas.
  • Use caution with electrical appliances, electrical cords and outlets if floodwaters have entered your home.  
  • Residents should not go outside or wade in standing flood water, which can contain contaminants. Following a heavy storm, sharp debris and other items from overturned garbage bins could be hidden in the water and cause injury. Standing water also may contain harmful bacteria that could cause infection.  
  • Health officials remind the public to not let children or pets play in flood water. 
  • Residents should prepare to notify their homeowner’s insurance providers if they have experienced flood damage and seek their advice on documenting the damage and drying out your home.  The same applies for contacting your vehicle insurance provider if you find your vehicle has been damaged.

The Turtles are Coming!

The Turtles are Coming!

The Turtles are coming!
The Turtles are coming!


A Message from the City of Hollywood. 

Sea Turtle Nesting Season Begins March 1.
The turtles need our support. Hollywood Beach can serve as an example of a thriving coastal city that also sustains breeding sea turtle populations. Broward County’s monthly turtle lighting surveys show that 25% of light reaching the beach comes from interior lighting. Here’s how you can help keep the beach dark for the turtles: 

• Turn off lights when you leave the room
• Close curtains and blinds after sunset
• Move lights away from windows and patio/balcony doors
• Use fixtures with shades
• Use dimmer switches
• Use low wattage, warm white bulbs
• Tint windows and patio/balcony doors with 15% transmittance or less 

To see what the tinting looks like in action, Sage Beach at 2205 S Surf Rd in Hollywood is an example property that was compliant as of FWC’s final inspection.   

From Broward County :  The official start of sea turtle nesting season in Broward County is March 1. Three species of sea turtles typically nest on Broward’s beaches each season: leatherbacks, loggerheads and green turtles. The Broward County Sea Turtle Conservation Program began monitoring sea turtle nests in 1981. Long-term trends suggest increases in local nesting populations.

Dear All:

The Hollywood CRA is preparing to mobilize  the construction of the undergrounding of overhead utilities and streetscape beautification.  The project boundaries are along State Road A1A from Hollywood Blvd. to Sheridan Street. This is the CRA’s completion of the SR A1A Complete Streets project which was partially  completed by the Florida Department of Transportation. We expect to start mobilizing toward the end of this year.   

The project includes but is not limited to:

a)      Undergrounding of overhead utilities

b)      A new signalized intersection at Garfield Street

c)       New landscape on sidewalks on both sides of SR A1A and in the medians

d)      New sidewalks with colorful concrete pavers on the west side of SR A1A

e)   New pedestrian lighting on the sidewalks on both sides of SR A1A

We invite you to please participate in several virtual meetings we will be having, or by directly calling our offices.  We would appreciate the opportunity to be able to contact you at frequent intervals during the course of this project and provide updates, get your feedback or any other issues.  In addition, we will have a project website that will be  updated weekly with scheduling and any other pertinent  information.

Currently, we are seeking information regarding your business operations, food/beverage delivery times, trash hauler schedules, and any other operations which could be impacted by the construction of this project.  Our objective is to minimize any disruptions to your business.

We look  forward to partnering with you and the contractor for a successful collaborative partnership during this construction phase.
