The City's Utilities Department is beginning the lengthy process of clearing our roadways of major debris. Some of this debris includes large trees and branches which are rendering some lanes and streets completely impassable. The City, and FPL and Traffic Engineering are working to make repairs at affected intersections, some traffic signs have also been damaged or downed and will be replaced. Until that time, many intersections will be staffed by Pembroke Pines officers and/or police service aides. Please slow down when approaching an intersection without power, and/or one being directed by an officer. Treat all out traffic intersections like 4-Way stops, and all flashing lights as stop signs (red) or yield signs (amber).
