University Drive-Old Club Road Roundabout:
Construction began in June of 2021 on the roundabout that will replace the three-way stop at the intersection of University Drive and Old Club Road adjacent to the entrance of the Parkland Golf and Country Club. At times this project will have a significant impact on traffic at that location including periodic single lane closures. We will provide as much advance notice of major traffic disruptions as we are able to—both on this page and on the City’s social media channels. This project is scheduled to be complete by the end of 2021. For more information on this project, visit: https://www.cityofparkland.org/roundabout.
Covered Bridge Park Expansion:
The expansion of Covered Bridge Park began on August 9, 2021. When complete, this passive park will include open spaces, green space, places to walk, meet friends, and relax. The project is expected to take approximately 10-12 months, understanding of course that significant weather events can impact work and completion. At times during park expansion there may be short-term, minor impacts on traffic in that area. As always, proceed with caution, reduce speed when necessary, and obey flag person commands.

Holmberg Road Improvement
This is a Florida Department of Transportation Project (FDOT) slated for 2022 that will improve the span of Holmberg Road from Pine Island Road west to Heron Bay Boulevard (the roundabout by Westglades Middle School). This project involves resurfacing of Holmberg Road, adding bike lanes in both directions, and extending the eastbound right turn lane on Holmberg Road by Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. The extension of this turn lane will help traffic flow during morning school drop-off and afternoon school pick-up. For more information on this project, click here.
Southwest 10th Street Connector:
The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) has considered all input regarding the connection from Florida’s Turnpike / Sawgrass Expressway to I-95 via Southwest 10th Street and has selected a preferred alternative which, according to FDOT, will provide “a limited access, high-speed connection” from the Sawgrass Expressway to I-95. When construction begins, it could impact commuters from Parkland to other parts of south Florida. For more information on this project, visit: https://www.fdot.gov/projects/sw10st/related.
