TRAFFIC ADVISORY – A1A & COMMERCIAL BLVD. IN LAUDERDALE-BY-THE-SEA
- BSO Case Number:
- PIO Number: 01-8-25
- Date: August, 2001 – January, 2002
- Time: around the clock
- Place of Occurrence: Area of A1A and Commercial Blvd., Lauderdale-By-The-Sea
Description of Incident:
The Broward Sheriff's Office wants to remind motorists of ongoing traffic congestion due to a major road construction project in a normally picturesque part of eastern Broward County.
The construction project at A1A and Commercial Blvd. is expected to last until January 2002.
Southbound A1A is currently closed down in Lauderdale-By-The-Sea from Gatehouse Road to Flamingo Drive. The northbound lane is supposed to be open, however due to construction this lane has experienced temporary closure. The alternate route for the construction on A1A is El Mar Drive, a residential roadway.
Commercial Blvd. is reduced to a single lane in each direction at several different locations. When the bridge over the Intracoastal Waterway goes up, traffic reaches the gridlock stage.
Media Note: thanks for the newspaper items that have been published. Please continue to remind motorists to use alternate routes, if possible, and to expect delays if they must traverse the area.
