Weekend Plans? Join the 2017 Brevard Epilepsy Walk
A great event for a great cause! The Annual Brevard County Epilepsy Walk creates awareness of epilepsy and raises funds for the programs of the   Epilepsy Association of Central Florida . The walk is 10/7/17 at   Brevard County Wickham Park .

Transportation Items Discussed During Legislative Delegation
Brevard County elected officials, municipalities, citizens, and organizations convened at the Brevard County Commission Chambers to present their Legislative Priorities at the Annual Legislative Delegation Meeting on September 20, 2017.

Transportation projects were mentioned by several municipalities. The SR 401 Bridge was discussed as needing to be replaced in the near future, as was the NASA Causeway Bridge. The NASA Bridge is currently going into Project Development and Environmental phase to examine the needs, environmental impacts, and possibilities of a replacement bridge. This bridge is vital to NASA’s and Space Florida’s operations and was mentioned by multiple organizations and municipalities. The approximately 45 year old SR 401 Bridge provides vital access to four port terminals. 

In a coastal community, such as Brevard County, bridges provide essential connections to barrier islands that hold places of employment, goods and services, tourist attractions, and more.
