Bike Loop Proposed In Brevard and Volusia Counties

VOLUSIA COUNTY AND BREVARD COUNTY, Florida -  The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) is holding an Alternatives Public Meeting for the Titusville to Edgewater Bike Loop Project Development and Environment (PD&E) study.  FDOT says that the objective of the study is to develop and evaluate design alternatives for the provision of a bike route for recreational and experienced bicyclists. 

The proposed route starts at the A. Max Brewer Memorial Bridge in Brevard County, heads north though the Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge and ends at Park Avenue on US 1 in Volusia County. This route is intended to form a loop with the East Central Regional Rail Trail.

Two meetings will be held where the same information will be presented. The first will be held in Volusia County on Tuesday, November 19 at the Edgewater Community Center located at 104 N. Riverside Drive in Edgewater, Florida. 

The second will be held in Brevard County on Thursday, November 21 at the Titusville City Hall located at 555 S. Washington Avenue in Titusville, Florida. 

Both meetings will be an open house from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. with a short presentation given at 6:00 p.m. Participants may review project information, watch a project presentation and discuss the project with FDOT staff at any time during the meeting.
