FORT PIERCE, Fla. — The St. Lucie Transportation Planning Organization is proposing the addition of bicycle lanes to the State Road-A1A South Causeway Bridge in Fort Pierce.

The plan would make the following changes:

  • Increases the widths of the two inside travel lanes to 12 feet
  • Restripe the two outside travel lanes for 8.5-foot wide buffered bicycle lanes that also will be designated for emergency vehicles, emergency evacuations and disabled vehicles

A public workshop will also be held on Thursday, April 4 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Fort Pierce City Hall located at 100 North US 1.
