BREVARD COUNTY • MELBOURNE, FLORIDA – Available Local Option Gas Tax money will be used to fund reconstruction of Riverside Drive in Indialantic, following a unanimous vote by the Brevard County Board of County Commissioners.

Riverside Drive is one of only two major thoroughfares on the beachside in Brevard County. The road will be reconstructed between Eau Gallie Boulevard and US 192.

“My office has received numerous calls and emails from beachside residents about the deplorable condition of the road,” Commissioner Andy Anderson said. “I have been working hard with staff for awhile to try and find the funding for this much needed project and I am happy to see this item get approved so we can get this road fixed.”

Construction on the road should start in early July.

Currently, plans are being developed to help minimize the impact on homeowners in that area but detours and delays can be expected once construction starts.
