CORAL SPRINGS, FL – If Coral Springs has its way, road improvement projects will be coming to Coral Hills Drive and NW 40 Street/Cardinal Road.

Last week, city commissioners approved submitting the projects for consideration through Broward County’s one-penny sales tax program that is intended to make better roads, increase public transportation options, and reduce traffic congestion.

The two projects are, according to a city memo:

- NW 40th Street/Cardinal Road from University Drive to Riverside Drive. The $3 million project would replace existing asphalt sidewalks, install ADA ramps at intersections, expand the existing multi-use path on the north side of NW 40 Street, and add a sidewalk on the south side of NW 40 Street.

In addition, it would improve drainage, add new curb and gutter, resurface the roadway, and upgrade existing transit stops along NW 40th Street and bus shelters.

- Coral Hills Drive from Sample Road to Wiles Road. The $4.4 million project would replace existing asphalt sidewalks on the east side, add a concrete multi-use path on the west side, and realign the centerline along Coral Hills Drive.

In addition, the project would remove existing delineators along the roadway and replace them with “speed tables,” and create new 11’ wide travel lanes and valley gutters.

It’s not clear what the next steps are in these projects.

For now, the commission passed a resolution in support of moving forward with the projects.
