DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (WOFL FOX 35)
The Florida Department of Transportation held a ribbon-cutting ceremony this week to celebrate the completion of the U.S. 92 Pedestrian Bridge. The project was a high priority due to a growing number of bicycle and pedestrian injuries in the area. FDOT says an average of 43,500 cars pass along this stretch of U.S. 92 daily.
"The pedestrian bridge is piece of a larger project that covers 1.3 miles near the Daytona International Speedway that includes upgrading an intersection, replacing sidewalks and making them ADA compliant, and landscaping, lighting, fencing and bridge treatments," said FDOT spokesperson Jen Horton.
