Bush: Road-Widening Provides Safer Travel and Needed Evacuation Route
The first phase of a major improvement planned for US-192 / SR-500 in Brevard County kicked off with an appearance by Florida Governor Jeb Bush, who praised state and local officials for pushing the needed project through. About 35 miles of US-192, from Melbourne to St. Cloud in Central Florida, will be four-laned to make travel safer and provide a crucial hurricane evacuation route.
The Vecellio Group’s Ranger Construction is prosecuting the first contract on the project, covering approximately 10 miles of roadway from I-95 west to the Osceola County line. The $24.3 million project includes reconstructing the existing lanes and adding a new lane in each direction.
