MINUTEMEN STREETSCAPE CONSTRUCTION UPDATE
The Minutemen Streetscape project is getting geared up to begin shortly.The first element of the project calls for moving FPL light poles on Minutemen. The poles will be moved from the north side of the bike path to the south side.
A pre-construction meeting was held October 7 with local businesses and residents that will be affected by the construction. The schedule from the contractor is to begin at the west end of the project at Cedar Avenue and move east. The contractor plans to a work a block at a time and only block traffic in the block they are working on. For example, first segment is Cedar Avenue to Woodland Avenue, then Woodland Avenue to Brevard Avenue ,then Brevard Avenue to Orlando Avenue, then Orlando Avenue to Atlantic Avenue, and finally Atlantic Avenue to the ocean. Each segment is planned to take 90 days, weather permitting and no unforeseen conditions under the roadway.
The Brevard County Public Schools Transportation Department worked with the City to provide a safe detour for the buses during the project. Also one of the sidewalks on Minutemen will be open for pedestrians. The walkway will be safe for children walking or biking to school.
Updates on the project will be posted on the City of Cocoa Beach website front page.
Additionally, CBNN will be utilized to update the project for citizens. Please sign up for CBNN and encourage your neighbors. CBNN is the best and most efficient way to keep up to date on "What's happening in Cocoa Beach".
