Street Resurfacing

In September 2000, the City Council approved full funding of City streets utilizing monies received from the local option gasoline tax.

The Road Repaving Program is based upon paving the most deteriorated major and minor arterial and collector roads initially (i.e. Country Club Drive, Knox McRae Drive, Park Avenue, DeLeon Avenue, etc), followed by local roads having the lowest Pavement Condition Index (PCI). The PCI ranking is determined by physically inspecting the road using surface evaluation criteria (number and type of cracks, bumps, potholes, rough surface areas, etc.). The roads are evaluated each year as conditions change due to the volume and type of vehicles using the road, the weathering effects, and other factors. The ranking of the roads usually determines whether or not the road should be repaved and when.

The City Public Works/Engineering Department intends to repave a minimum of six (6) miles of roads each year. At six (6) miles per year, all of the City’s roads (188) miles should be repaved within 30 years, the average life expectancy of a local asphalt road. Of course, roads under state jurisdiction such as U.S. 1, SR 405, SR 406, SR 50 and county roads such as Old Dixie Highway, Singleton Avenue, Sisson Road, and Carpenter Road will be repaved by those governmental agencies.

Should you desire to know what the PCI ranking is for your particular street and approximately when your street may be repaved, you may call the Public Works Engineering Department at (321) 567-3846 and ask for the Public Works Engineer.

 

Adopt - A - Road

Reduce Litter - Make a Commitment - Get involved

The City of Titusville is inviting interested Titusville businesses, clubs, and other organizations to adopt at least a one-mile stretch of City maintained road and to clean both sides of this roadway at least four times per year.

Goals

The Adopt-A-Road Program goals are to keep our environment clean by reducing litter along our roadways through an organized cleanup program, and to increase public awareness of the importance of litter reduction.

How the Program Works:

1. Selecting a Road for Adoption - Interested individuals should contact the City Streets Maintenance Division at (321) 567-3832. Adoption is subject to approval by the City. Members of the Adopt-A-Road must be at least 18 years of age to participate.

2. Information Packet - An information packet containing a Litter Removal Agreement, Safety Guidelines, and Litter Removal Procedures will be sent to all interested individuals. The site coordinator, who represents the Adopt-A-Road team, completes and returns the Litter Removal Agreement to the City Streets Maintenance Division. At the end of the one-year adoption commitment, a team may choose to renew its agreement.

3. Signs - Each Adopt-A-Road team will receive personalized signs from the City, installed at the beginning and ending points along the adopted roadway.

4. Safety Training - A safety workshop for the cleanup team will be conducted upon arrangement with the Adopt-A-Road Coordinator. A copy of the safety guidelines will be provided to each participant in the group by the site coordinator prior to conducting the first cleanup.

5. Scheduling Cleanups - Cleanup teams are requested to contact the Adopt-A-Road Coordinator to arrange an appropriate litter cleanup schedule that will not conflict with the City's maintenance mowing schedule. Teams shall arrange to pick up safety vests and return them when cleanup is completed.

6. Conducting Cleanups - The Coordinator is responsible for reviewing the cleanup procedures and safety guidelines with the group. The Coordinator will also assist in the development of litter data from the team members. Filled trash bags may be left at the group's signs and will be collected by a City work crew. Teams are encouraged to recycle and are responsible for taking recyclable trash with them.
