Public Works Projects
Florida Ave
.: Joint Project between the City of Cocoa and FDOT: The project scope includes a complete street project along Florida Avenue from King St. (SR 520) to the southern-most City limits, south of Rosa L. Jones Drive. The project will include roadway reconstruction, new sidewalk on both sides of Florida Ave., new curb and gutter, on-street parallel parking, minor storm water improvements, pedestrian scaled decorative streetlights, signage, landscaping and irrigation. The new sidewalk will be a combination of concrete and brick pavers. Existing driveways are to be reconstructed to meet ADA requirements along with the new sidewalks.  The project includes replacing the existing water main along Florida Avenue and connecting cross streets. The project will include mobilization, maintenance of traffic (MOT), erosion control and clearing of debris.
Access to residences and businesses will be maintained during construction, but delays should be expected.  
Project completion date: May 2017 

Beginning October 3, daytime lane restrictions to traffic along Florida Avenue will occur between 7:00 AM and 5:00 PM, Monday through Friday.  Flaggers will be on site directing traffic within the construction zones.  Please allow for extra travel time.  Your patience and cooperation during this project is greatly appreciated.

The Leon and Jewel Collins African-American Heritage Museum at The Harry T. Moore Center
The City of Cocoa received two grants from the Florida Department of Historical Resources to renovate the Harry T. Moore Center. The project will include roof replacement, interior renovations, window and door renovations to replicate the historical windows and doors as well as mechanical and plumbing renovations.

The Harry T. Moore Center was built in 1924 as Cocoa's only African-American elementary school. The school was named after Civil Rights Activist, Harry T. Moore, who was killed in 1951. Mr. Moore taught briefly at the school before devoting his career to championing civil rights.

The project will commence in early 2016 and will take approximately 12-15 months to complete.

Construction of Three New Fire Stations
During the Strategic Planning Process, it was determined that the Public Safety issues were of top priority. The City entered into an agreement with a design group to provide conceptual fire station design and location analysis. The design group conducted a location analysis, information gathering, spatial needs assessment, site/master planning and conceptual design. Three sites were chosen by the City for the future locations of our new fire stations. Fire Station #1 will be located on Dixon Blvd. near Clearlake Rd., Fire Station #2 will be located on Brunson Blvd. and Fire Station #3 will be located on SR 524. The City purchased the land on Dixon Blvd. and SR 524.

The project and related Scope of Services include building one Fire Administration headquarters which will house a 3-bay station, administrative offices and a training center. In addition, the two satellite stations will consist of a 2-bay design and housing quarters for staff.

The three fire stations are in the final design phase and are expected to move toward the bidding process in May 2016. Construction will begin in late 2016 and is expected to be completed within 12-18 months.
