The project evolved in anticipation of development along this corridor as a year-round tourist destination. Approximately 9.1 million visitors come to Volusia County each year.
This is a major corridor, with an average daily traffic count of 43,500 cars.
The pedestrian bridge is piece of a larger project that covers 1.3 miles near the Daytona International Speedway that includes upgrading an intersection, replacing sidewalks and making them ADA compliant, and landscaping, lighting, fencing and bridge treatments.
