FDOT plans changes at Vero intersection after rower killed

FDOT plans changes at Vero intersection after rower killed

Vero Beach, Fl (treasuecoast.com)- FDOT plans changes at the Vero intersection after Grace Rhett was killed.

In the wake of a crash last month in Vero Beach that claimed the life of a college rower, the Florida Department of Transportation is planning changes to an intersection in Indian River County. 

FDOT presented its ideas Wednesday before the county’s Metropolitan Planning Organization.  The plan is to add new traffic signals in the coming weeks where Indian River Boulevard and the Merrill Barber Bridge meet.  The main signal will have a flashing yellow arrow to warn southbound drivers before turning onto the bridge.

On Jan. 15, Grace Rett, a member of the College of the Holy Cross women’s crew team, died when the van she was riding in was struck.
