The Broward Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) is investing over $300 million to create safer, healthier communities in Broward. This project is one of many within a larger plan to create enhanced bicycle, pedestrian, and public transportation access throughout the Broward region. The Broward MPO is a federally-mandated agency that is responsible for making decisions on local transportation issues and deciding how to spend federal funds on transportation projects within Broward.
