As we head to the midpoint of completion of Wilton Drive road construction, we have some exciting developments and opportunities ahead of us! Our mission is to support businesses on Wilton Drive by promoting:
Reducing speeding on the drive with the FDOT “road diet” and enhanced lighting will promote security and safety. While we are not 100% happy with some of the FDOT initiatives it is an improvement, and we will focus on how to move forward in a positive way.
Wiltondrive.org, is gaining ground and we hope you continue to support this site by encouraging all to “sign up” for updates. The website was conceived to develop communication about construction and as a tool for retailers, service providers, bars and restaurants to increase consumer awareness. We have also created some renderings to be used for marketing purposes to give consumers, and current and future tenants a taste of what Wilton Drive will look like when complete. If you are interested in using these renderings for marketing, contact [email protected]
Our Wayfinding System will not just guide visitors but will enhance our city’s branding and reinforce Wilton Drive as the heart of our community. The WDID Board increased the cleaning of the sidewalks of Wilton Drive to three times a week. Please thank our crew when you see them wearing our WDID logo tee shirt! Landscaping /Street Furniture is next on our schedule, and we are lobbying to have as many shade trees as possible in our tree wells and outrigger planters. The WDID Board is funding a portion of the project, in partnership with the City (www.wiltonmanors.com).
The Drive Project Proposal
Our signature road is undergoing some important and necessary improvements. From a safer roadway and buffered bicycle lanes to pedestrian friendly sidewalks and lush landscaping.

Wilton Drive Flashback
Before being officially named Wilton Drive in 1928, our famous curved road was almost destined to be called White Way. Click below for some more Wilton Manors nostalgia.
