Study Purpose: The Wickham Road Operational Analysis was conducted to evaluate and identify multi-modal solutions to facilitate pedestrian/bicycle/transit movement along the corridor and to address congestion and safety issues.
Study Limits: Eau Gallie Boulevard to Lake Washington, Melbourne
Project Status: The Aurora Road Corridor Study has been underway since Spring 2017. There have been three public meetings/workshops held throughout the study process to gather input and feedback on the development of a preferred alternative. The study team is working on reviewing all comments received and will be conducting final evaluations on which alternative(s) meet the goals of the study and the needs of the citizens and users of the corridor.
A final presentation is currently scheduled to be given at the TPO’s Technical and Citizens Advisory Committee meeting on Monday, May 7, 2018, and at the TPO Governing Board meeting on Thursday, May 10. Aurora Road is maintained by Brevard County, and the final decision on which improvements will be implemented is the responsibility of the County.
Design and construction phases are currently not funded. Improvements may be implemented in phases and if right-of-way is determined to be required during design, this phase will also need to be funded.
The final recommendations and preferred improvements will be posted here upon completion of the study over the next several months.
The sidewalk parallel to SR A1A is known as the A1A Urban Trail. Spanning more than 40 miles from Port Canaveral to Sebastian Inlet, the urban trail allows for non-motorized transportation along the Barrier Island and links important resources, such as the Indian River Lagoon and the East Coast Greenway.
