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. View information on the Holmberg Road improvement project.
FDOT will host a virtual public meeting on Thursday, May 12, 2022, from 5:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m., followed by an in-person construction open house from 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. at the Parkland Library. View more information about the meeting and Holmberg Road Improvement project 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. View the latest SW 10th Street Connector project updates from FDOT.
