To make Surfside a more walkable and pedestrian-friendly place to live, as well as to help keep drivers safe on the 200th block of 90th Street, between Harding Avenue and Collins Avenue, which has been deemed unsafe for drivers traveling westbound and turning left onto Harding Avenue.
In a continued effort to make Surfside a more walkable and pedestrian-friendly place to live, the Town of Surfside will test a new streetscape design recommended by the Planning & Zoning board and voted on by the Town Commission, starting Thursday, December 14. The proposed design features a safe pedestrian path and green/parking area, on 89th and 90th Streets, between Harding and Hawthorne. Due to the width of the streets being narrowed during the test, both 89th and 90th Streets will be changed to one-way streets.
Furthermore, the 200th block of 90th Street, between Harding Avenue and Collins Avenue, has been deemed unsafe for drivers traveling westbound and turning left turn onto Harding Avenue. It’s difficult for drivers to see oncoming traffic heading south, as a result of a slight bend in the road on Harding Avenue. Therefore, the Town of Surfside felt it was necessary to also add 90th Street to the proposed streetscape design and make it a one-way street moving eastbound. By doing so, the Town of Surfside hopes to help prevent dangerous situations and keep residents safe.
Thursday, December 14th - The one-way streets will go into effect this Thursday morning, with 90th Street traffic moving eastbound between Hawthorne and Collins Avenue, and 89th Street traffic moving westbound between Harding Avenue and Hawthorne. The streets will be clearly marked with paint to designate the pedestrian area, as well as the green/parking area.
Tuesday, February 13th - It was decided at the Town Commission Meeting to allow the trial to continue for 60 more days with a meeting to evaluate options and data to be held within this time period.
Wednesday, March 28th - A Town Hall Meeting on the One-Way Street Trial will take place starting at 6:00 pm, in the Town Hall Commission Chambers. This is an opportunity for the community to discuss the one-way street trial and provide feedback prior to the final report being presented to the Town Commission at their Aril 10th monthly meeting.
The Town of Surfside held a resident workshop on July 18, 2017 to discuss the proposed plan and also distributed information to residents through a number of communication channels including the December Gazette, door hangers, e-blasts and website.
