    Creating transit alternatives along these two corridors by eliminating lanes for cars is a recipe for disaster. Population distribution, Land Use patterns, and Street Network in PBC are NOT conducive to transit alternatives and providing one by spending millions of dollars WILL fail to attract enough users. In general, public wants freedom and convenience of using personal automobiles are we as a nation are very fortunate that most of us can afford to have personal automobiles for move around. Peak congestion is a byproduct of this freedom and most of us can sacrifice a little chunk of our life to send in this congestion to enjoy the benefit personal automobiles provide. Transit options should be carefully designed and should serve densely populated locations within the county.

    Why is NOBODY stopping the group that assembles unpermitted weekly during rush hour (Thursdays from 3:00 to 6:00), in violation of multiple City and County ordinances and codes, creating an experientially greater dangerous driving environment and commute time for ~260,000 (95 ~200k AADT / Okeechobee ~60k AADT) hard-working, PBC residents trying to commute home after a hard day's work? Any citizen who tries to do something about this problem becomes a target of cyber-bullying and aIRL target by the group and supporters of these groups (i.e., a victim of domestic terrorism)! Local government MUST intervene. TPM restrictions are justified and should be established, at the least.

    There should be an additional westbound turning lane from PB Lakes onto Okeechobee Blvd to ease congestion.

    Can we take advantage of the empty lot to put in a WIDE (enough room for bikes and pedestrians to pass comfortably) mixed-use bridge here?

    This would be a great place for a train station.

    It would be great if there was a mixed-use path to access this neighborhood from Okeechobee Blvd.

    Walking along O Blvd is miserable most of the year. This road needs shade trees, not just palms. It would also be nice to have a landscaped buffer between the sidewalk and the road that has speeding cars, provide some separation because it just feels dangerous right now

    Okeechobee Blvd might be a good candidate for a bus rapid transit line similar to the Health line in Cleveland along Euclid Ave. raised bus stops for easy boarding and bus-only lanes.

    I consistently see older people struggle to cross the street in the allotted crossing time because the road is so wide. There needs to be refuge islands in the middle of the crossing

    Motorists exiting the turnpike heading west on Okeechobee boulevard take their life into their hands as they merge onto Okeechobee. There needs to be plastic barricades (like the kind used when exiting Australian onto Okeechobee). Cars speeding west bound jet into the right lane as cars exiting the turnpike are not yet up to speed. It is a mess

    While there are sidewalks along Okeechobee Blvd, with 8 lanes of traffic, the road noise of the sheer speed (70mph plus... it is a speedway between Jog Road and 441), we need green buffers and more green in the medians . Take Palm Beach Gardens along PGA blvd there are dense bushes in the median absorbing the sound. It looks like an 8 lane barren highway.

    Turn this "alley" along the canal into a multitiuse trail, add some stage, bridge over 95 to a path around the lake. It could be a development driver similar to the BeltLine in Atlanta

    Too many egress points for stores/shopping plazas close to intersection. Lots to have to pay attention to. Cars will pull out and cross three lanes of traffic to get in the left turn lane of the intersection (example: exiting eastbound from Applebees and then trying to go North on Military). Recommend connecting the parking lots of the various stores/plazas and have controlled egress from a few specific locations. Example, Check Cashing store parking lot on SE corner can be connected to plaza. Eliminate egress from Check Cashing store (ingress only). Similar issue on NE corner. Customers of Boston Market and Crab Shack can exit on Zip Code Pl. Use original access for entrance only.

    Not many options for eastbound commuters to head North. Take commuters off Okeechobee Blvd by completing Roebuck Rd extension from SR7 to Jog Rd. Recommend connecting Jog Rd from Roebuck Rd to 45th St and installing a Turnpike interchange on Roebuck Rd (northbound entrance only and sounthbound exit only).

    There needs to be a designated right turning lane on Haverhill Rd to make a right turn onto Okeechobee Blvd. The new WAWA should be paying for this necessary change..

    Tri-Rail is the biggest cluster. Train rails will always go down and block traffic for several minutes, with no train to ever come, then go back up again.

    Exit to Australian Ave shouldn't be an exit only lane. Cars never realize it's exit only, then swerve left at the last minute into the other lanes.

    crazy dangerous entrance to main thoroughfare on a short entrance ramp, the cars are already barreling toward 95 at this point, look west where all the cars have to go north 95 or south to Boca better signage needed there on the road to show where to go. I just pray I am far enough to the left to go out west after the Kravis shows to get out of the raceway to 95, poorly designed ramping. Look at examples of signage on the interstate at I70 and I50 in St. Louis. There is a very complicated intersection with a Mississippi River Bridge entrance that you could learn from. They solved their congestion problem. Also the Rams stadium is there!

    SLOW down the traffic. Everything East of tamarind / Parker on Okechobee should be 19 MPH with "traffic calming" design. This will not slow down traffic. What cars already do is terrible : they accelerate quickly to the next red light and slam on the brakes.This makes noise and intimidates pedestrians. 19 MPH is what Paris does now !!!
