Front Street – Melbourne, FL

Contact: Georganna Gillette

The Front Street Complete Street Feasibility Study was recently completed. The purpose of the Study is to conduct a corridor analysis for the Front Street complete streets project and develop a conceptual complete streets roadway design from which the City can develop engineering plans. The conceptual complete streets design will include roadway typical sections, traffic calming measures, pedestrian crossings, and streetscaping elements.

Based on public input and data collected, the following design goals were developed for the corridor:

  • reduce/manage flooding
  • connect existing multiuse trail on Melbourne Avenue to Melbourne Causeway
  • provide safe bicycle and pedestrian crossing of Front Street
  • maintain or expand on-street parking spaces

The design phase will begin in FY 2018 and construction is funded for FY 2020.
