BREVARD COUNTY • PALM BAY, FLORIDA – Palm Bay City officials cut the ribbon for the new segment of the St. Johns Heritage Parkway on Tuesday morning.
The Parkway and southern Interstate 95 interchange are now open to traffic and the new 1.67-mile segment of the St. Johns Heritage Parkway runs east-to-west between Babcock Street and the new “diverging diamond” interchange.
The new southern interchange will provide Palm Bay residents with much-needed access to the I-95 corridor, reducing travel times and traffic surrounding the existing interchange at Malabar Road.
The northern and southern segments of the St. Johns Heritage Parkway serve as the first and second phases of a future beltway around Palm Bay, connecting Brevard’s most populous City with U.S. 192 in West Melbourne and Interstate 95 in southeast Palm Bay.
The Parkway provides alternate routes, alleviating daily traffic congestion within the city of Palm Bay, and provides residents with additional access points to critical emergency evacuation routes.
