Palm Bay Rd - Robert J. Conlan Blvd.
In partnership with the City's landscaping of Palm Bay Road and the Palm Bay Road - I-95 Interchange with the Florida Department of Transportation construction funds to widen Palm Bay Road from four lanes to six lanes, the BCRA helped to fund the Palm Bay Road - Robert J. Conlan Boulevard intersection. This intersection is a gateway to the Bayfront Community Redevelopment District and to the Harris Corporation campus. Work was completed in the Summer of 2013.
Main Street - Railroad Landscape Buffer
The BCRA funded the installation of a landscape buffer comprised of Sabal Palm and Wax Myrtle trees along the west side of the FEC Railroad tracks on the east side of Main Street from Hessey Avenue to Alexander Street. The buffer is part of the Tillman Neighborhood N.I.C.E. Program improvements. The cost of the buffer is $61,000.
Farview Subdivision N.I.C.E. Program Improvements
Potable water lines in the Farview Neighborhood were upgraded from 2 inch lines to 6 inch lines with BCRA funds. The work was completed in May, 2012. Drainage improvements were made at the south end of Shenandoah Road and at the Spence Drive and Clinton Drive intersections with Shenandoah Road in 2012. In 2013 the fence at Victoria Park along the railroad right of way/drainage ditch was extended over the ditch after drainage pipes were installed. The Farview Neighborhood is the second neighborhood to take part in the City's N.I.C.E. Program.
