City of Palm Bay Signs Agreement For Future I-95 Interchange North of Micco Road
By Space Coast Daily // January 20, 2016
CONSTRUCTION WILL BEGIN THIS YEAR
BREVARD COUNTY • PALM BAY, FLORIDA – City Manager Gregg Lynk celebrated with his staff on Tuesday after signing the agreement for the future I-95 interchange that will be built north of Micco Road beginning sometime in 2016.
The City of Palm Bay essentially served as the agent for the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) to acquire all of the land needed to create the interchange.
“A lot of folks worked incredibly hard on this enormous project and it is a game changer for the City of Palm Bay,” said City Manager Gregg Lynk.
The city worked to acquire all of the property and the city will ultimately transfer that property to FDOT to build the interchange off of I-95 in South Palm Bay.
“The arrangement with FDOT brought the project to fruition in a way that will benefit the city and it also had the city’s guiding hand throughout the process,” said Michael Sjuggerud of Cantwell & Goldman, P.A.
“This is not big brother shoving the interchange or a parkway onto an unwilling municipality, but rather this is an opportunity for the city to create its own vision of infrastructure and transportation corridors in a way that will benefit its residents and its businesses.”
