The purpose of this project is to enhance safety through access management improvements along State Road (S.R.) 520 (West King Street) from Cox Road to Lake Drive/Varr Avenue in Cocoa West. The project is based on recommendations in the Access Management Safety Study completed in June 2019.
Within the project limits. S.R. 520 has two travel lanes in each direction separated by a raised concrete median. The project calls for closing or constructing directional median openings at some locations and adding or modifying turn lanes at other locations. Necessary drainage work, pedestrian improvements, signal modifications and lighting upgrades are also planned.
