Barton Boulevard Streetscape Project

Between February 2007 and August 2008, the City of Rockledge and the Rockledge Community Redevelopment Agency completed a two-mile, $7.5 million beautification and infrastructure enhancement project on one of Rockledge’s most vital commercial corridors, Barton Boulevard.

The project aided longstanding drainage issues, improved traffic flow by adding new lanes, and enhanced pedestrian movement with new sidewalks and bicycle paths. In addition, as part of this sizeable project, decorative lighting, mast-arm traffic lights, landscaping, benches and bus shelters were added to this important connector roadway, and in 2009, Barton Boulevard garnered the Florida Redevelopment Association’s “Best Capital Project/Beautification” award.
