BREVARD COUNTY • PALM BAY, FLORIDA – The City of Palm Bay will hold a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 9 a.m. on Tuesday, August 11 to celebrate the completion of the new segment of the St. Johns Heritage Parkway and southern I-95 interchange.
The Parkway and interchange will be opened to drivers Tuesday afternoon.
The event will be open to the public and take place at the east end of the St. Johns Heritage Parkway, just west of the new I-95 interchange.
Attendees must access the Parkway from Babcock Street and head east towards the interchange to reach the event site. The new Babcock Street intersection is located just south of Sunrise Elementary.
Please note that there will be no event access from the I-95 interchange.
The new 1.67-mile segment of the St. Johns Heritage Parkway will run 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.
