Bridge being out shouldn't be a problem for them Duke Boys..







Odd that they are saying it was damaged during Dorian though- that storm barely knocked palm fronds to the ground.

The estimate for the rebuild is one year.

The giant ramps will be completed is just under a month.

FDOT post storm inspection........ same organization that brought us the recent A1A road improvements? Same org that is bringing us a completely unneeded Ellis I-95 ramp between 192 and Eau Gallie? Same org that just coned off 100% of IHB thru Indialantic to put in a handful of medians that should have been put in when they made previous said A1A improvements? More clownage from one of the worst run gubment orgs we have. I hope someone challenges the merit of their findings.........

^^^ The exit off I95 it to grow the Melbourne-Orlando International airport. "The airport exit", was it needed??..not really, in the future 10-20 yrs from now..yeah maybe a good idea, we will see. I wonder what will happen to Ellis road. The A1A medians are for crosswalks that are being built currently, the cones were needed so they could dig then go directly to the next spot and dig; it was a huge machine doing the work...cones are now being taken away, was not much of a delay maybe an extra two to three minutes? I have had one friend (RIP Art Stroud) and a neighbor hit and killed crossing A1A in my area, crosswalks way overdue. The bridge..well that is going to be a huge project, bike lanes, maybe taller? Not sure where the money will come from ...FDOT? Sebastian Beach Tax District? Hopefully they can patch fix the structure rather than full replacement. I do not know much about the damage. Did you vote for the .05 tax increase? Not even going to start on the muck removal boondoggle.

Have to disagree with you on this point. Guess you dont work out by Ellis and 95 like I do. If you did you would realize how bad the traffic is on John Rodes and that this ramp is needed. Agree with you on the other points. And wish FDOT did a better job communicating their plans with the residents beachside and give us more opportunity to be part of the process and let us decide where the cross walks should go. I am glad that we are getting one by my beach access but there is no sidewalk on the east side of A1A so it wasnt planned out very well.

Oh boy this will be fun. The stated purpose of the Ellis ramp is to "allevite traffic" from 192 and Eau Gallie "for the airport". Because you know, soooooooooooo many people are influxing by car from the N and S to fly out of Melbourne. As a matter of fact, I work off John Rodes. This ramp is going to make it worse!!!! This money should have been used to 4 lane Ellis and John Rodes end to end which is so badly needed. I dont see how you possibly think adding more traffic onto 2 lanes of Jon Rodes is going to help? A1A crosswalks - I have learned to like them, though they were poorly thought out. One of my points was - why were the ones they are working now not added at the time they just re-paved A1A and put alllllll the other crosswalks in a year ago?? typical FDOT. Come back a year later and cut up the concrete. They coned off the entire lanes 100% from IHB to 192 including all the intersections. Then there was not a worker around for atleast a week. Do you know why they re-did the cones in a more efficient manner recently? Because people were calling them (Melanie) saying WTF why is Eau Gallie turning onto N A1A coned off for a median 1/2 mile up the road, it makes no sense. Why is Paradise coned off? So they "re-evaluated" and reworked the cones and I agree its much better now and I understand they need them for safety. But why not think it thru and put them how they are now in the first place? Because FDOT thinks nothing through before they do it... Back to the subject at hand - I hope someone challenges the inspection. Sounds like someone wants to build a new bridge, bike lanes and all. toodles.

Ya sfds totally agree that a ramp for the "Airport" is BS. And ya ellis and john rodes needs to be 4 laned but you dont think this ramp will help to alleviate the traffic backed up at 5pm for those that have to take john rodes to I-95? Of course it will.

There is apparently hope. I read an article last night in our local 32963 about the bridge and FDOT was interviewed saying it is way to early to say how much or how long it will take to replace and that they will be doing a study to see how to keep the traffic flowing while the work is being done.

Could these be the same genius folks that allowed a WAWA to go in at 192/US1 (already bad before) without adding a right hand turn lane?

It's a total clusterf&^ every morning there now- backed up to the bridge, people pulling kook turns every which way trying to get in, out and across

Wait til we have that train going by every hour it will be over the damn bridge SMH nice work

Is there a Wawa anywhere that isn't a rat maze to enter?

A year for the bridge does seem like a ridiculous amount of time.
