The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) is holding an informational open house regarding the resurfacing project along North Courtenay Parkway from State Road (S.R.) 528 to the Kennedy Space Center property line. A project location map can be found below for reference.
The purpose of the project is to mill and resurface the travel lanes, paved shoulders, and medians. Bike lanes also will be provided from S.R. 528 to Grant Road/Smith Road. The project will also include extending and adding new left turn lanes at various locations to provide additional storage. Other project improvements include American with Disability Act (ADA) updates, guardrail enhancements, drainage, adding intersection lighting at the four signalized intersections, and Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) upgrades.
The open house will be 5:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 17, 2019, at Calvary Chapel Merritt Island, 3500 North Courtenay Parkway, Merritt Island, FL 32953. Interested persons may attend at any time during those hours to view a looping video presentation and project exhibits, speak with project team members, and provide input on the design. In the event the open house cannot be held on Sept. 17, 2019, due to severe weather or other unforeseen conditions, it will be held on the alternate date of Tuesday, Oct. 8, 2019, at the same time and place.
