Public Workshop on Transportation Projects in Indian River County on November 17, 2021
Indian River County is developing a list of bicycle and pedestrian transportation needs on county-maintained roadways. Potential projects include roadway resurfacing and/or rehabilitation, bike lanes, sidewalks, and new roadways. Such projects are potential candidates for inclusion in the County's five-year Capital Improvements Element and for grant funding assistance through the Florida Department of Transportation.
Recently, the MPO and County Public Works Department have received requests to increase the amount of public participation in the conceptual and pre-application phases of transportation projects. At the November 17 workshop, MPO and Public Works staff will review the current state of the transportation system, the MPO's Bicycle and Pedestrian Plan, existing and planned projects, and hold a special public input session on any other future system needs.
- When: Wednesday, November 17, 2021 2:00 PM – 4:00 PM
- Where: 1st Floor Conference Room, County Administration Building "B" 1800 27th Street Vero Beach, FL 32960
