Fort Lauderdale Beach is an international destination visited by Fort Lauderdale neighbors, regional residents, tourists, employees, special event attendees, and more. The Fort Lauderdale Beach Mobility Study seeks to understand how these unique users get to and from the beach and how they move around once they have arrived. The Study will focus primarily on the barrier island south of Sunrise Boulevard and north of the Port Everglades Inlet. The Study will ultimately result in a ranking of proposed projects along with funding and implementation mechanisms.
This page will provide updates on the development of the plan and include opportunities for Fort Lauderdale neighbors to provide input on the plan and the most critical areas of focus.
The following deliverables were created as part of Phase 1 of the Beach Mobility Study.
Between December of 2017 and February of 2018, links to online surveys were emailed to project stakeholders and advertised on this website. The goal of these surveys, which were administered as separate neighbor and business owner surveys, was to understand the views of both neighbors living on or visiting the barrier island and of business owners. In-person surveys on the beach were also conducted on January 12 and 13, 2018 to capture the perspective of people who visit the beach. The results of these surveys can be found in the Beach Mobility Study Documents section above.
Agency Stakeholder Interviews
Understanding the needs of agency partners is a crucial component of any master planning effort. For this reason, 10 agency partners and stakeholders ranging from rideshare services like Lyft to Port Everglades and Fort Lauderdale Fire Rescue Department were interviewed. The results of these interviews can be found in the Beach Mobility Study Documents section above.
Map Your Improvement Ideas
To solicit a variety of information in a more engaging format, the Transportation and Mobility Department utilized an innovative mapping tool called Wiki-map. Wiki mapping allows citizens to enter information related to mobility, including opportunities and needs for elements related to sidewalks, bike lanes, traffic signals, stop signs, crosswalks, areas of frequent congestion, or any other opportunity or issue they feel is present. Although the Wikimap poll is closed for submissions, submitted comments may still be reviewed by visiting the link below.

Transportation staff and its consultant held a public workshop at Village Design on Breakers Avenue the evening of October 3, 2018. Instead of a formal presentation, attendees were encouraged to circulate the room to understand how the study has approached identifying issues engaging one-on-one with staff and commenting on some of the major proposals from the draft study. Materials from the meeting can be found below.
