Project Description:

The Greenback Lane Complete Streets Improvements Project will rehabilitate this major arterial corridor between Sunrise Boulevard and Fair Oaks Boulevard. The goal is to enhance pedestrian and bicycle mobility, improve traffic flow and improve the rideability and aesthetics of the corridor.

The project will encompass the following improvements:

  • Roadway resurfacing for smooth driving
  • Repairs/upgrades to existing storm drainage infrastructure 
  • Upgrading select traffic signal equipment at Fair Oaks Blvd., Arcadia Dr. and Sunrise Blvd. 
  • At the Fair Oaks Blvd. and Greenback Ln. intersection: 
    1. Reconstructing/realigning sidewalks and ADA compliant curb ramps on all four corners to eliminate painted pedestrian islands, shorten the pedestrian crossing distances (north - south and east – west) and improve overall safety and mobility at the corners
    2. Installing new pedestrian push buttons and posts at all crossing points
    3. Relocating the Pedestrian signal heads to align with new crossings
  • Installing updated ADA compliant curb ramps at remaining intersections within project as needed
  • Installing new traffic signal communication equipment

Project Status:

Construction commenced on Monday, March 14, 2022 with an estimated completion date in August of 2022.  

Minor traffic signal and bike lane work remains and will have minimal impact to commuters. 

The City will work with the contractor to mitigate impacts to businesses along the corridor, which includes temporary traffic control and some night work. There will be select periods of time where two crews are working, one during the day and one at night. Anticipate commuter impacts Sunday, March 20, 2022 - July 5, 2022 from 8:00 PM - 6:00 AM AND 8:30 AM - 3:30 PM.

To help alleviate traffic and make the job go as smooth as possible, please:

  • Use alternate routes
  • Obey speed limit signs
  • Watch for workers
  • Limit trips
