BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – The St. Johns Heritage Parkway Southern Segment construction, which started in February 2015, is set to be completed this spring, according to Brevard County officials.
The St. Johns Heritage Parkway Southern Segment consists of the construction of a 3.111-mile, 2-lane suburban roadway.
Major items of work include clearing and grubbing, excavation and embankment, optional base, asphalt concrete sidewalks, inlets, manholes, concrete pipe, bridge, curb and gutter, fencing, signalization and signing and marking.
The construction cost was $12.7 million, which was funded through the local option gas tax, state and federal grants, constitutional gas tax and impact fees.
This commission-approved CIP project is intended to alleviate traffic congestion and improve travel time for commuters, as well as create an evacuation route for those in the northeast quadrant of Palm Bay.
The Parkway will expand to a southern I-95 interchange near Micco Road, opening up southern Palm Bay to new development.
