FDOT and Broward County will be hosting three Alternatives Public Workshops for the Broward Commuter Rail PD&E Study. The workshops will include information on the Broward Commuter Rail project, including station locations and alternatives for the New River Crossing that will need to be considered as part of determining a Locally Preferred Alternative (LPA). Determining the LPA is critical to entering the Federal Transit Administration's Project Development process, which would allow the project to compete for federal funding.
Three workshops will be available, including two virtual and one in-person on the dates below. Please see the attached flyer for more information.
