BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – A contractor working on behalf of the Cocoa Utilities Department is working on a water main project on North Tropical Trail known as the North Tropical Trail Looping Improvements.
Currently, North Tropical Trail has two sections where there isn’t a water main.
The current pipeline configuration produces a bottleneck on Chase Hammock Road. and this project will connect the existing pipelines.
The installation of new water mains and upsizing existing water mains will improve fire flow availability and improve overall system reliability in North Merritt Island, specifically in the North Tropical Trail and Chase Hammock areas.
The project includes the installation of 3,215 feet of 8-inch ductile iron pipe to extend a water main on North Tropical Trail from Porcher Road to the current end of the water main just south of Church Road as well as the portion just south of Crisafulli Road and north of Church Road.
About 3,360 feet of the existing water main on Chase Hammock Road, from North Courtenay Parkway to Judson Road, is being upsized from the current 4-inch and 6-inch pipe to 8-inch ductile iron pipe.
The $1,268,563 project officially started on January 3 and is estimated to be completed by November, 14.
The contractor is Atlantic Development of Cocoa, Inc.
