State Road A1A/Miramar Avenue Design Public Hearing

Brevard County -- The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) is hosting a public hearing regarding proposed safety improvements on State Road (S.R.) A1A/Miramar Avenue from U.S. 192/S.R. 500 to south of Atlantic Boulevard. The public hearing will be held on Tuesday, July 31, at St. Marks United Methodist Church in Indialantic. It will begin as an open house at 5:30 p.m. with a formal presentation at 6 p.m. followed by a public comment period.


The purpose of this project is to increase bicycle and pedestrian safety by adding 11 raised concrete pedestrian mid-block crossings, and enhancing one existing crossing, within the median along S.R. A1A/ Miramar Avenue at various locations from U.S. 192/S.R. 500 (5th Avenue) to south of Atlantic Boulevard. Construction of the new pedestrian crossings will include signs, rectangular rapid flashing beacons, crosswalks, curb ramps, lighting, and pavement markings. The existing crossing is located south of 2nd Avenue, where additional safety features will be added. Sidewalk additions and sod modifications will also occur within the project limits to enhance beach access. Improvements also include minor drainage work. This project will not require right of way acquisition.


The environmental review, consultation, and other actions required by applicable federal environmental laws for this project are being, or have been, carried out by the FDOT pursuant to 23 U.S.C. 327 and a Memorandum of Understanding dated December 14, 2016, and executed by the Federal Highway Administration and FDOT.

All exhibits or statements postmarked, or emails received on or before August 10, 2018, will become part of the public hearing record. Also, a court reporter will prepare a verbatim transcript of the proceedings.
