The purpose of this project is to improve pedestrian safety along State Road (S.R.) A1A in Cocoa Beach, from Cocoa Isles Boulevard to St. Lucie Lane. The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) is proposing to install Mid-block Pedestrian Signals (MPS) at two locations: north of Antigua Drive near Lori Wilson Park, and north of Surf Drive near the First United Methodist Church. 

Mid-block Pedestrian Signals are similar to a traditional traffic signal with red, green, and yellow lights; however, the signal remains green for drivers until it is activated by a pedestrian. When the pedestrian pushes the button to indicate the desire to cross the roadway, the MPS will change from a green light to a yellow light and then change to a red light, signaling drivers to stop. Once the lights are red, the pedestrian is given the “walk” signal to proceed across the roadway if traffic has stopped. The light will then change to a flashing red light, allowing drivers to proceed if the crosswalk is clear. The light will then return to a solid green for drivers and the “no crossing” symbol will be displayed for pedestrians. To see how it works, please view this video link https://vimeo.com/ursci/review/513494891/74f7f2a1f7.

Additionally, the project also includes minor pedestrian enhancements at side streets along the corridor, such as reconstructing and upgrading existing sidewalks to meet current Americans with Disabilities (ADA) standards.
