Minton Road Feasibility Study

Minton Road Feasibility Study

Contact: Sarah Kraum

The Minton Road Feasibility Study will evaluate the corridor for potential improvements through an existing conditions analysis, travel demand modeling, data collection, and intersection improvement recommendations.

The corridor to be assessed is from Palm Bay Road to US 192.  The corridor is maintained by the County and within the West Melbourne city limits.

The corridor includes two bus routes, nine public and private schools, a variety of land uses, parks, and access to Promise in Brevard, a housing facility for special needs adults.

Notice to proceed for the project was issued May 9, 2019 and the project is anticipated to be completed by late Winter 2021.

Please note the schedule is subject to change.  Full tentative schedule can be accessed here.

The Social and Economic Profile of the study area can be accessed here.
