Florida Department of Transportation improves safety in high-pedestrian corridor
BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – The speed limit on an approximately 9-mile stretch of State Road A1A in Brevard County is scheduled to be reduced to 35 mph beginning May 1.
Flashing Advance Warning Signs have been installed along the roadway to also bring to the driver’s attention that there is pedestrian activity ahead.
FDOT crews will also install six in-street pedestrian crossing signs at each of the 16 mid-block crossings.
These signs, which act as a traffic calming mechanism and remind drivers to stop for pedestrians, are placed to create a “gateway effect” on the pavement markings within the roadway.
Creating an environment in which pedestrians can safely traverse the state’s roadways is of utmost importance to FDOT.
Pedestrians, bicyclists, and drivers also all play vital roles regarding the safety and operations of the roadway.
As these changes come to State Road A1A in Brevard County, it remains important for motorists to obey the new speed limits and to stop if pedestrians are crossing or preparing to cross.
Pedestrians should also be sure to cross only in a crosswalk and to activate the RRFBs when crossing.
Schedules are subject to change due to weather or unforeseen events.
