Palm Bay/Brevard County Events Mark Milestones for St. Johns Heritage Parkway

January 5, 2015

The City of Palm Bay and Brevard County will hold a joint ribbon-cutting/ground-breaking ceremony beginning at 4 pm Tuesday, Jan. 13, to mark the completion of  Phase I and the start of Phase II construction of the St. Johns Heritage Parkway.

Two years after construction began, the City of Palm Bay and its partners are preparing to open the new parkway, a critical north-south evacuation route that is expected to ease traffic congestion on the northwest side of the city. The ribbon-cutting/ground-breaking will take place at the intersection of the Parkway with the west end of Emerson Drive. This is also where Brevard County will break ground for Phase II of the project, which will extend the roadway to US 192. As the county builds this phase of the Parkway, the city will also construct the portion of the Parkway from Emerson Drive north to city Limits, which will fully connect both the city and county phases of the roadway.
