Schedule:   Project Schedule

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.

State of the System Report

Contact: Laura Carter

The Space Coast Transportation Planning Organization (TPO) annually evaluates the state of Brevard’s transportation system. The results are summarized in the State of the System (SOS) report. The SOS considers usage and performance trends of various transportation modes — highways, transit, seaport, airport and space. Safety, mobility and congestion  evels are monitored. Long term trends and possible problem locations are identified. Thus, the SOS provides technical guidance to the TPO on where and how state and federal dollars can be programmed to enhance Brevard’s transportation system.

SPACE COAST PATHWAYS PROJECT WORKSHOP OCTOBER 15

Help us map and promote non-motorized transportation options for Space Coast residents and visitors.

The Space Coast Pathways Project, funded by the Space Coast Transportation Planning Organization, is the development of an Interactive Guide to Brevard’s trails, waterways, sidewalks, bike lanes and unique outdoor adventures.

Hiking, biking, paddling, running and other outdoor recreational activities are primary economic drivers in communities:

  • Trails add value to new homes and consistently remain the number one community amenity sought by perspective homeowners. (National Association of Realtors)
  • Every $1 spent on biking trails and walking paths could save approximately $3 in medical expenses. (American Heart Association)
  • Trails in Orange County support 516 jobs and have an estimated economic impact of $42.6 million annually. (East Central Florida Regional Planning Council, 2011)
  • Nearly 75% of all Florida visitors participate in nature-based activities during their visit. (Visit Florida, 2011)

Thank you to everyone who has attended one of our informational meetings about this project. We are ready to take the next step but need your help!

Please attend or send a representative to the Pathways Project Partner Workshop:

Thursday, October 15, 8:30 am to Noon
Bill Posey Conference Center at Florida Department of Health
2555 Judge Fran Jamieson Way
Viera, FL 32940

Workshop goals:

  • What does the community want in an online pathways guide?
  • Where are the current pathways?
  • How can we promote our pathways?
  • What specific elements need to be included in the project RFP?

RSVP today! Contact: Katrina Morrell

US 1 Corridor Planning Study

Contact: Georganna Gillette

This corridor planning study is designed to evaluate multimodal transportation improvements along a one mile section of US 1 in Titusville from Laurel Place to Indian River Avenue.

A public kick-off meeting is scheduled for July 29, 2015 from 5:30 to 7:30 pm at Titusville City Hall in the Council Chambers. Read more details.

Included within the corridor is the planned Space Coast Loop Trail, a 40-mile loop connecting downtown Titusville, Kennedy Space Center, the Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge and Northern Brevard County.

The study will involve extensive community input in determining how best to meet the needs of current and future users, as well as a long-term plan to guide evolution of the corridor so that it appropriately balances land use and transportation.

A kick-off meeting for stakeholders was held on April 13, 2015. Learn more by visiting the FDOT project website.
