Construction Begins for Lighting Improvements on Stirling Road at I-95 — Traffic May Be Impacted Through Fall

Construction work is about to begin on the lighting around Stirling Road from SW 19 Court to SW 18 Court in Hollywood and Dania Beach, and it will continue until Fall of this year.

The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) has awarded a $199,400 contract to AUM Construction, Inc., for improvements to lighting throughout this area, which is just to the east and west of I-95.  The project improvements include installing 11 additional light poles and luminaires on both sides of Stirling Road.  There will be an upgrading to the pedestrian crosswalk signal near the on-ramp from Stirling Road to northbound I-95, and an upgrading of the signs within the project limits, including “pedestrian crossing” signs and “signal ahead” signs.

One outside lane of Stirling Road may be temporarily closed during the procedure, although no lane closures will be allowed on Stirling Road between 6 and 9 am or between 4:30 and 8:30 pm.   Overnight closures of the on-ramps from Stirling Road to both northbound and southbound I-95 and the off-ramp from northbound I-95 to Stirling Road are expected for a few hours between 11:30 pm and 6 am on Sunday through Thursday evenings.  Sidewalk areas will be maintained on at least one side of the road within the project limits. Signage will be in place to guide pedestrians.

For additional project information and updates, contact Barbara Kelleher at the Florida Department of Transportation at 954 777 4090.
