|Construction Cost:||$9.0 Million|
The purpose of this project is to improve the roadway surface and enhance mobility and safety along State Road (S.R.) 520 from Aurora Street to the Hubert Humphrey Causeway in Cocoa. S.R. 520 splits east of U.S. 1, with eastbound traffic on King Street and westbound traffic on Willard Street.
In addition to repaving the roadway, the project calls for widening bicycle lanes where possible and repurposing the outside travel lane to accommodate a new 7-foot-wide parking lane on eastbound S.R. 520 east of U.S. 1, as well as improved right turn lanes. The free-flow eastbound right turn lane at the S.R. 520 intersection with U.S. 1 will also be brought under signal control.
Pedestrian safety enhancements include reconstructing and extending curbs to shorten pedestrian crossing distance, improved crosswalks, and upgraded pedestrian signals. Sidewalk will be constructed to close gaps, and sidewalk curb ramps will be reconstructed to comply with current Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) standards. The project will also upgrade existing traffic signals and modify existing medians and traffic separators.
Other improvements include removing obsolete driveways and driveway reconstruction, and drainage adjustments.
