Broward County Hiatus Greenway Presentation

Highway and Bridge Maintenance Staff Present Hiatus Greenway Update to Residents

On Tuesday, January 21, 2014, Commissioner Lois Wexler and staff from Highway and Bridge Maintenance Division, made a presentation to interested residents on the Hiatus Greenway design and construction. Staff provided the overall project highlights and two design concepts seeking input from the community. Attendees took a vote to reroute part of the greenway slightly to avoid cutting down mature oak and mahogany trees in several locations.

The Hiatus Greenway is a part of the County's Greenway System, which serves to inspire healthy recreation, provide opportunities for environmental education and offer gathering places for social interactions. This multipurpose trail will connect to the recently completed New River Greenway at State Road 84 and head north to Welleby Park on N.W. 44th Street in Sunrise, affording pedestrians, bicyclists and equestrians a safe and attractive path along the C-42 Canal. Construction is expected to start in late 2014.
