Public Ceremony Tuesday
BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Motorists traveling north of Titusville along Interstate-95 are about to get some much needed relief.
Robin Fisher, the Brevard County District 1 Commissioner, members of the North Brevard Economic Development Zone and the Space Coast Infrastructure Agency with the Florida Department of Transportation will host a public ceremony Tuesday to mark the beginning of construction on a major project to widen nearly 30 miles of I-95 in Brevard and Volusia counties.
The event will be held at 10 a.m. at the northbound visitors’ rest area on I-95, just north of Titusville, at mile marker 225.
The I-95 highway serves as a vital artery for Brevard County and Volusia County, as well the entire State of Florida, by moving goods, services and people up and down the East Coast.
It’s important to commerce, to tourism and to economic development, all things critical to the area’s dynamic and changing economy.
The public is invited to attend the ceremony.
When completed, the project will cover nearly 30 miles and will widens I-95 from four lanes to six lanes.
The project limits are from State Road 406 in Titusville to State Road 44 in New Smyrna Beach.
Cost of the project is $118.3 million.
Lane Construction Corporation and DRMP are the design-build team and a financial agreement with the design-build team extends the project’s payment timeline, which allows this entire project to be built now.
