Road Closure Greenbriar Avenue NW

Post Date:07/15/2014 1:44 PM

Last night there was a pipe failure over the Melbourne Tillman Water Control District (MTWCD) canal crossing at Greenbriar Avenue NW between Malabar Road NW and Manhattan Street NW.  The collapse was due to a dual 40” x 65” corrugated metal culvert failure under the roadway at the canal crossing. Due to the inclement weather the water flow under the road increased, and it washed out the road.  A temporary detour route was put in place last night until the permanent detour route is implemented.  The current detour is as follows:

  •  Vehicles coming from south of the closure on Malabar Road will be routed to Jupiter Boulevard NW, then to Americana Boulevard NW, then to Greenbriar Avenue NW.
  • Vehicles coming from north of the closure will be routed to Americana Boulevard NW, then to Jupiter Boulevard NW, then to Malabar Road. 

 Public Works Staff will be working on a permanent solution.  At this time, the road is expected to be closed for 3-4 months.  Updates will be provided as information come available.   Should you have any questions please contact the Public Works Department at 952-3437.
