The SCTPO continuously works with local and regional transportation partners throughout the life cycle of each project. Here are some current partner projects: 

Brevard County Projects

 

  • Ellis Road Widening: Project Limits: John Rodes Blvd. to West of Wickham Road 
    • Project Summary: Roadway Widening – The Ellis Road widening is a vital connection between the I-95 Interchange, economic generators, and the Orlando-Melbourne International Airport.
    • Project Status: Right of way partially funded
    • Unfunded Phase: Construction
  • St John’s Heritage Parkway – Palm Bay Parkway Section:The Palm Bay Parkway section is currently under an Alternative Corridor Evaluation (ACE). The purpose of the study is to evaluate new roadway corridors between Babcock Street and Malabar Road, a distance of approximately 14 miles.For current updates, please feel free to visit the County’s webpage for the project:  https://www.brevardfl.gov/PublicWorks/st-johns-heritage-parkway-alternative-corridor-evaluation

FDOT Projects

528 Widening: Industry Road to SR 3
This project includes widening and reconstruction of State Road (S.R.) 528 (S.R. A1A/Martin Andersen Beachline Expressway/Astronaut Boulevard) from four to six lanes from east of S.R. 524 to east of S.R. 3. The project includes the replacement of the bridges over U.S. 1, S.R. 3, the Indian River Relief Canal, and the westbound bridge over the Indian River. A shared-use trail is also included on the north side of S.R. 528.

528 Widening: SR 3 to Port Canaveral Interchange
This project involves adding one lane in each direction, and a multi-use trail on the north side of State Road (S.R.) 528 (S.R. A1A/Martin Andersen Beachline Expressway/Astronaut Boulevard) from east of S.R. 3 to the Port Canaveral exit/S.R. 401 interchange. Improvements are also proposed at Banana River Drive, S.R. 401, and George King Boulevard interchanges with S.R. 528. The project also includes the following bridge replacements: Sykes Creek, Banana River Drive, Banana River Relief, Banana River, and S.R. 401. The widening of SR 528 to six lanes is currently in the design phase.

A1A:
Long Point Road to George King Blvd

  • Project Summary: Curb & gutter and multimodal improvements
  • Project Status: Design
  • Unfunded Phase: Right of Way and Construction

International Drive to Long Point Road: This project will take a rural section of State Road (S.R.) A1A (Astronaut Boulevard.) and reconstruct it to an urban section with access management modifications from International Drive to Long Point Road and new concrete sidewalk. The reconstruction includes buffered bicycle lanes and up to 8-foot-wide sidewalks.  The project also includes the realignment of International Drive.

    • Project Summary: Intersection improvements and sidewalk
    • Project Status: Design, Unfunded Phase: Right of Way (partially) and Construction

Babcock Street PD&E: Roadway Widening: study to address capacity and safety issues on Babcock Street from south of Micco Road (Deer Run Road) to Malabar Road in Brevard County, a distance of approximately 9 miles. The PD&E Study involves a combination of engineering analysis, environmental review and public involvement to evaluate options for widening Babcock Street from the current two-lane roadway to a four-lane roadway. 


Clearlake Road (SR 501) Widening: This project calls for widening State Road (S.R.) 501 (Clearlake Road) from three lanes to four lanes from south of Michigan Avenue to north of Otterbein Avenue, and from two lanes to four lanes from north of Otterbein Avenue to west of Industry Road.  The proposed typical section will be a four-lane divided roadway with curb and gutter, with accommodation for bicycle lanes and sidewalks on both sides.Malabar Road Widening: The Florida Department of Transportation is examining the feasibility of widening Malabar Road to four lanes from east of Babcock Street to US 1. The addition of sidewalks and bicycle lanes is also being examined. The goal is to improve traffic flow and increase the safety and accessibility of the roadway for all users.


Complete Streets

Complete Streets are designed and operated to enable safe access for all users. Pedestrians, bicyclists, motorists, and transit riders of all ages and abilities must be able to safely move along and across a complete street. The SCTPO has been actively supporting Complete Streets in Brevard County since 2010.

Front Street – Melbourne, FL

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.

Depiction of a typical Complete Street, where the roadway accommodates all users, becoming a safer and more appealing corridor.

Pineapple Ave. – Melbourne, FL

The Pineapple Avenue Complete Street Feasibility Study was recently completed. The purpose of the study is to conduct a corridor analysis for the Pineapple Avenue 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, gateway features, and streetscaping elements.

The study corridor extends from Montreal Avenue in the south to Aurora Road in the north. Based on the data collected and public input received, the following design goals were developed for the corridor:

  • Provide continuous bicycle facilities that connect to existing bike lanes.
  • Connect the civic spaces across Pineapple Avenue.
  • Connect neighborhoods to the civic uses along the east side of Pineapple Avenue and the retail and commercial uses in the redevelopment area.

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