Johnson Street Utility Improvement Project in Hollywood

Johnson Street in Hollywood,FL

While living in South Florida, we do enjoy nice weather all year round. But we have to accept another fact that comes with it – because of the great weather, people can work outside all year round. That includes road construction work. Yes. Road construction here, South Florida, is happening all year round.

Johnson Street Utility Improvement Project is on the way in Hollywood, FL.

While driving through construction area, remember the people working on the road and be very cautious. The street work is temporally, and once it is done, the ride will on a newly paved street be nice and smooth.

Be patient. Traffic and bumps on the road are just temporally.

If you ever come to Downtown Hollywood, FL then you can notice beautiful murals all around the downtown area.

I wrote already in my blog about the Downtown Hollywood Mural Project . There I have talked about the big sunset mural painted by TM Sisters on a public parking garage in downtown Hollywood.

Yuhmi Collective

Lets look into another outdoor mural that is part of this walking mural tour. The picture above is of the mural located at 115 North 21st Avenue, Hollywood, FL. It is painted by Yuhmi Collective. Yuhmi Collective is a husband and wife artists working together. Michelle is a Cuban-Colombian Miami native and Victor is from Mexico. They work together and paint animated portraits of paradise dreams, air, land and sea.

This husband and wife team works by mixing traditional and contemporary influences. “A Floating World” capture in an abstract time.

“We were really captured by Joseph Young’s vision “Dream City” and the founding story of how ‘Hollywood by the Sea’ was created and transformed throughout the years.” — Yuhmi Collective

Fort Lauderdale is a great city. This city never sleeps. There is always something going on. There are lots of changes happening all the time.

I wrote already in my blog before about some things that I have noticed changing around and transforming this great city. I wrote about the new high-rise construction in downtown. In this blog post I wrote about outdoor art. Here I wrote about new colorful bike lanes paintings on Las Olas Bolevard. I wrote about Broward College Downtown Campus coming down.  When we combine all these little changes, we get big transformatiion of Fort Lauderdale as a whole.

There is another City of Fort Lauderdale project that I wanted to write about. Did you notice the colorful painted intersection at East Las Olas Boulevard and SE 3rd Avenue in Downtown Fort Lauderdale?


Why Was Street Pavement Painted?

Fort Lauderdale has started Connecting the Blocks Painted Intersection Project. It is first of its kind in the city and Broward County. This Painted Intersection Project should compliment “Fort Lauderdale’s identity as a fun, dynamic, pedestrian-friendly destination” also it should “help create a safer balance between cars and people”.
