Port Bypass Road

Broward County is constructing a Bypass Road through Port Everglades to facilitate public access from State Road 84 and US-1 to the Greater Fort Lauderdale/Broward County Convention Center and its new hotel, both currently under construction, and to reduce traffic congestion on the adjacent segments of US-1 and SE 17th Street. The project includes a new two-lane road with security fencing, a bridge with a barrier wall, a roundabout to facilitate port traffic movement, relocated security checkpoint, lighting, traffic signals, security and communications systems, and signage and pavement markings. Construction is expected to be completed by Fall of 2025.
