Beginning Monday, April 23, 2018, road work will start on Sunrise Blvd. between Locher Drive and Sayonara Drive (southbound lanes primarily). Road work to be limited to one lane of traffic on weekdays from 7:30 am to 5:00 pm. Some portions of the work will also require limiting northbound traffic to a single lane for several days during work hours. Road work is expected to last until September 2018
As you’ll note the working hours of the project are outside the normal times allowed for work on arterials, which is 8:30 AM – 3:30 PM. This is due, in part, to storm drain work, which will be located in the middle of the road as existing utilities are located on the sides of the road. Extending the work time will allow this portion of the work to be completed up to two weeks earlier. This work, which will have significant impacts on southbound lanes, will take approximately 4-5 weeks. For approximately 10 days during the storm drain work, traffic will be restricted to one lane each direction and southbound traffic will be shifted over to the northbound side of the median during working hours only. Once the storm drain installation is complete, most of the balance of the work will take place on the southbound shoulders of the road and northbound lanes should remain open.
The City is committed to mitigating impacts, as is feasible, by modifying traffic signals to allow for longer periods of traffic flow. The contractor may conduct some work at night to lessen impacts and will use changeable message boards to give regular drivers on the corridor advanced notice of significant changes.
While it takes place outside the boundaries of the District, this work is just North of our boundary and may significantly impact commute, residential and consumer traffic.
PROJECT: Sunrise Blvd Complete Streets Improvement Phase 2A
LIMITS OF WORK: Locher Drive to Sayonara Drive (southbound lanes primarily)
The primary focus of the project is to install sidewalks along the west side of Sunrise Boulevard between Woodmore Oaks Avenue and Sayonara Drive. Work will include installation; 1) installation of new storm drain system, 2) new curb, gutter and sidewalk and 3) new street lights.

CITY PROJECT MANAGER: Stuart Hodgkins
CONTRACTOR: All-American Construction
SCHEDULED START DATE: April 23, 2018
EXPECTED COMPLETION: September 2018
TIME OF DAY: 7:30 – 5:00
Installation of the new storm drain system will typically require southbound Sunrise Blvd. To be limited to one lane of traffic on weekdays from 7:30 AM to 5:00 PM. Some portions of the storm drain work will also require limiting northbound traffic to a single lane for several days during working hours. We also expect 1 or 2 days of work within the Sunrise/Sayonara intersection which may require placing the signal in red-flash for a period of time.
