BICYCLE INITIATIVES

The City of Hollywood is working to create a sustainable community and is developing a Resiliency Action Plan. Mobility is one of the many focus areas of that plan. The City of Hollywood has worked collaboratively with the Florida Department of Transportation and the Broward Metropolitan Planning Organization to implement a network of bicycle paths through the City. Some of the projects include the FDOT State Road 7 Improvement Project that is currently under construction. This project includes the construction of a buffered bike path traveling north and south. The Hollywood Boulevard Complete Streets Project will also include a buffered bike path. This project will provide a bike path connection on Hollywood Boulevard between Dixie Highway and City Hall. As identified in the Hollywood/Pines Corridor Study, bike paths are proposed to complete missing bike path segments on Hollywood Boulevard, as well as new bike paths on Washington Street between State Road 7 and 56th Avenue; 72nd Avenue between Hollywood Boulevard and Johnson Street; Polk Street between 56th Avenue and North Circle Drive; Van Buren Street between 56th Avenue and South Rainbow Drive; and North Park Road between Hollywood Boulevard and Johnson Street. As part of the proposed Johnson Street Complete Streets Project between Dixie Highway and the C-10 Canal, bike paths are also being proposed. Other corridors with proposed bike path projects under review are 14th Avenue, 56th Avenue, 62nd Avenue and 64th Avenue.
