TITUSVILLE, Fla. (May 21, 2020) — Titusville Police Department has issued a traffic advisory and accompanying video for citizens and visitors ahead of the upcoming manned SpaceX Crew Dragon launch.
Titusville Police Department's Traffic Advisory for the SpaceX Crew Dragon Launch,
scheduled for May 27, 2020, at 4:33 p.m.
The Titusville Police Department’s highest priority is the safety of our citizens and visitors. We would like to update community members and those individuals who are entering the city to view the significant upcoming launch on traffic information and mapping.
The highly anticipated manned Space X Dragon Crew Capsule Launch is scheduled for Saturday, May 30th at 3:22 PM. Police want to advise motorists to slow down in launch viewing areas on U.S.#1, State Road 406 along the A. Max Brewer Bridge, and the surrounding park areas.
During this historic and exciting time, we want to remind motorists and pedestrians that road safety is a two-way street. Motorists and pedestrians should be highly alert and vigilant in a coordinated effort to keep the roadways safe!
Motorists, please be advised of heavy vehicle and pedestrian congestion and significant traffic delays are anticipated before and after the launch. Please slow down, put down distracting devices, and watch for pedestrians.
Pedestrians, look for oncoming vehicles and obey traffic laws by crossing roads at designated crosswalks when possible.
A MULTI-AGENCY traffic exit plan has been developed to help with a safe exit from the City of Titusville after the Space X Dragon Crew launch.
All motorists on Garden Street (SR 406) and on the A. Max Brewer Bridge and surrounding areas will proceed west on SR 406. All motorists north of Harrison Street will proceed northbound. All vehicles south of Harrison will proceed southbound.
Lastly, we are encouraging motorists to download the WAZE app (www.waze.com/apps) to their mobile devises. This valuable application is an intuitive tool that will help identify and map designed traffic routes and potential altercations in fluid traffic routes out of the city in real time. Enjoy the launch and DRIVE SAFE TITUSVILLE!
