“Cocoa Beach Uncorked provides attendees a delicious culinary experience that highlights the different cuisines the Space Coast has to offer,” said Eric Garvey, Executive Director of Florida’s Space Coast Office of Tourism. “After a successful inaugural event a year ago, we look forward to further spotlighting the area’s culinary scene. And there’s no better place to enjoy some sweeping Atlantic views while sampling all this magnificent food, wine and beer.”

“Cocoa Beach last year was the ideal launching pad for the first ‘Uncorked’ festival on Florida’s East Coast,” said Tammy Gail, the event’s producer. “This is a one-of-a-kind showcase for the culinary treasures of this region. We’re excited to be back for another unforgettable weekend and we look forward to a sellout event.”

Cocoa Beach Uncorked is sponsored by Florida’s Space Coast Office of Tourism, the City of Cocoa Beach, Publix, and the Hilton Cocoa Beach Oceanfront hotel. General admission tickets for each day of the event are available for $55 per person, while VIP tickets for each day are $75 per person.

Lane Closures, Detours for I-95 Construction in Florida

The Florida Department of Transportation reports the following traffic impacts as a result of I-95 construction in the Daytona Beach area:

Lane Closures

Sunday, March 25th, 2018 to Saturday, March 31st, 2018

  • U.S. 92 Closures Sunday – Thursday, 10 p.m. – 6 a.m. Sunday, U.S. 92 eastbound will be closed at I-95. Monday – Thursday all lanes of U.S. 92 will be closed at I-95. Traffic will be detoured using Tomoka Farms Road, Bellevue Avenue and Williamson Boulevard. Please note traffic will not be able to use the I-95 southbound on ramp from U.S. 92. Traffic will be detoured south on Williamson Boulevard to Beville Road.
  • Sunday – Saturday, 7 a.m. – 7 p.m. and 9 p.m. – 6 a.m., I-95 northbound & southbound lane closures from U.S. 92 to south of I-4.
  • Wednesday, 10 p.m. – 6 a.m., inside lane closure on the ramp from I-4 eastbound to I-95 northbound for pouring an approach slab.

This project involves widening Interstate 95 (I-95) from four lanes to six lanes from north of State Road (S.R.) 44 to north of U.S. 92 (International Speedway Boulevard). The southern project limit will tie into the recently completed I-95 widening project to the south (from south of S.R. 406 to north of S.R. 44). The project scope also includes the reconstruction of the systems interchange with I-4, I-95 and U.S. 92.

Work to be done includes pavement widening, drainage systems improvements, bridge widening, bridge replacement, retaining walls, highway lighting, Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) modifications, median barriers, signing and pavement markings, signalization, milling, and resurfacing.

This project reconstructs the I-95 interchange leading to and from I-4 and U.S. 92, which will increase mobility and connectivity. It will also increase safety for merging, exiting and through-traffic. The project will eliminate a left-side merge ramp onto I-95 from U.S. 92, just a short distance to the south. Additional lanes will be constructed along I-95 allowing vehicles traveling through the area to continue in dedicated lanes, and vehicles entering and exiting I-95 to be separated into dedicated entrance and exit lanes.

Millhouse Steakhouse – Jacksonville, FL

I dined at this fabulous restaurant more than once. I was told by many of my I-95 road warriors friends that it was the best place for steaks on I-95.

It has been my 4th time at the Millhouse and I can honestly say you won’t be disappointed. It’s moderately priced for the quality served. I think it has one of the most extensive menus I have ever seen. All quality menu items.

This is a must try if you are traveling in north Florida on I-95.

Millhouse Steakhouse is located less than 1/2 mile west of I-95, Exit 363, (1341 Airport Road) in Jacksonville, Florida.
