A1A/SR200 Corridor Design Plan

The Nassau County Board of County Commissioners is working on a corridor design plan for the State Road 200/A1A/ Buccaneer Trail Corridor from Police Lodge Road west of I-95 and continuing east to the Intracoastal Waterway, approximately 13.18 miles. The goal of the process is to provide specific recommendations for segments identified along the SR 200/A1A Corridor including but not limited to:

  • Creation of place-based segments along the Corridor;
  • Context-sensitive land use and zoning recommendations;
  • Design and implementation strategies for signage, wayfinding, and identity; and
  • Low impact design strategies for addressing stormwater retention in a coordinated way.

Review more information on the background of this study.

The goals of this study are to transform the SR 200/A1A into a place that functions not just as a major roadway, but a place that provides different opportunities for living and working, and creates a sense of place in Nassau County based on our community’s history, character, and quality of life. The County is seeking a long-term design plan for the Corridor so that it is still functional and of value to the community over the long-term. The Corridor Study will emphasize community identity, enhance the public realm and streetscape, encourage recreation and bicycle and pedestrian activity, promote compact mixed-use development patterns, and improve environmental quality and floodplain management, while also attracting private investment and making use of already developed sites.

Moving Forward 

After a thorough RFQ process, the County has engaged GAI Consultants to assist in development of the Corridor DesignTimber to Tides Trail logo Plan. Initial work with GAI has envisioned the corridor as the Timber to Tides Trail: From Rural Roots to Community Crossroads. 

As part of the Corridor Design Study, there will be public outreach and opportunities for engagement. Please see below a calendar of upcoming community engagement sessions.
