The City of Hollywood was awarded approximately $6.8 million grant from Broward MPO for a project with the condition that the design incorporates various elements of the “Complete Streets” guidelines. Originally, downtown business roadway was used as a “main street”, and vehicles moved much slower than today. Growth of modern automobile users increased the flow of traffic making it unsafe for pedestrian crossing and parking.
For this project, MARLIN designers used a multimodal approach to roadway planning – instead of widening the street for vehicles, they recommended improvements to create a livable community that is safe for biking, walking, and transit. New design integrates place-making design concepts that bring mixed use and creates a street that is safe and comfortable for children, wheelchair users, and sidewalk retailers.
