State / FDOT Projects:
Troutman - Clearmont Realignment
The Troutman Boulevard Utility Relocation and Roadway Realignment project includes the designing, constructing and vacating of approximately one-half mile of Troutman Boulevard, from Franklin Street to Charles Herbert Drive. Improvements include the removal/abandonment and relocation of utilities from Troutman Boulevard to adjacent roadways and easements as well as extending Clearmont Street to Troutman Boulevard. Clearmont Street will be upgraded from a rural divided roadway to an urban divided roadway. Clearmont will be widened to four travel lanes from Palm Bay Road south to the new Troutman Boulevard connection. Sidewalks will also be installed along Clearmont Street from Palm Bay Road south to Troutman Boulevard and along Franklin Street from Troutman Boulevard to Clearmont Street. Additionally, the drainage system will be converted from an open swale to closed culvert system for Clearmont Street from Harris Avenue south to the connection with Troutman Boulevard. This project is scheduled to be completed by Spring 2014.

Cross City Trail - Phase 1
The Cross City Trail – Phase 1 project involves the design and construction of a 3,940-foot long, 10-foot wide hard surface, multi-use trail. This trail runs along the FP&L easement, extending from Malabar Road south to Walpole Road. This phase of the project will connect Jupiter Elementary School and surrounding neighborhoods to Malabar Road allowing additional pedestrian connectivity to Palm Bay Regional Park, Heritage High School and Franklin T. DeGroodt Public Library. This project is scheduled to be completed by Summer 2015.
Bus Shelter and Bench Installation Project
The City has partnered with Space Coast Area Transit to install approximately 15 bus shelter and 20 bench locations throughout the city limits over the next three years. The project aims to encourage the community to use public transportation while providing resting locations at existing bus stops. Proposed locations will be compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Improvements are funded through Space Coast Area Transit and Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) monies.
St. Johns Heritage Parkway (Palm Bay Parkway)
St. Johns Heritage Parkway once complete will provide 22-miles around Palm Bay into Melbourne at U.S. 192 and ending at a new I-95 interchange at Ellis Road. The project will be split between Palm Bay, Brevard County, and FDOT.
Impact: The Parkway will alleviate traffic congestion and improve travel times for commuters, as well as create an evacuation route for those in the northwest 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.

FDOT Portion of Project
I95 Northern Interchange
- This new interchange will align with St. Johns Heritage Parkway on the west and Ellis Road on the East. Please visit our project website at www.cflroads.com.
I95 Southern Interchange
- The South Parkway and Interchange project is currently in the Project Development and Environmental Study (PD&E) phase. The PD&E study includes data collection, alternatives development and analysis, environmental studies, study documentation, and selection of a preferred alternative. Upon completion of the study, the interchange and access roads can be fully designed and constructed. The interchange project has been included in the Florida Department of Transportation’s (FDOT) 5-year work plan. The connecting access road will be constructed as part of the surrounding proposed development. The property owners, FDOT and City of Palm Bay have partnered to keep the project moving forward. More details will follow as the project progresses. View Map
Babcock Street (SR 507) Widening - State/FDOT Project
The project begins at Malabar Road (SR 514) and extends north to Palm Bay Road (CR 516), a distance of approximately 2.5 miles. The proposed improvements include widening to a six-lane, divided roadway and will include bicycle lanes and sidewalks. The design will also include a northbound bridge replacement and a southbound bridge widening over the Melbourne-Tillman Canal. By June 2014, the design team will have finialized the engineering plans and secured all necessary environmental permits. The project is not currently funded for construction.
