The purpose of this project is to increase safety, improve traffic flow, and reduce the number of areas where vehicles cross paths by modifying the open median to a bi-directional configuration at the intersection of Nova Road (S.R. 5A) and Miles Drive in Volusia County. This change will continue to allow northbound and southbound right turns, as well as eastbound and westbound left turns onto Miles Drive. Northbound and southbound left turns onto Nova Road will be prohibited at this intersection. These improvements were developed following an intersection study completed in March 2020.
