GO Roads Paving Program Kickoff Event Scheduled for October 11th
On Friday, October 11th, City of Palm Bay officials will host an event to mark the beginning of the GO Roads paving projects. The event will be held at 4:00pm at Thunderbird Avenue and Firethorn Road NW, located just east of Fred Poppe Park. Residents and members of the media are invited to attend.
After nearly a year of extensive planning and preparation, work has officially begun on Palm Bay's GO Roads paving program. On August 13th, the Palm Bay City Council approved the first GO Roads paving bid in the amount of $3,145,839 for the areas of Unit 41 and Eldron Boulevard (from Malabar Road to Hatcher Street and from Caribbean Street to Pineapple Cove Academy). This project consists of road repaving and reconstruction within the two areas, which have recently undergone a series of much needed stormwater infrastructure improvements.
The GO Roads paving program is funded by the $150 million general ordinance bond approved by voters in November 2018. Work will be carried out in five phases over the next several years, with each phase being vetted by the City of Palm Bay's Infrastructure Oversight and Advisory Board before going to City Council for final approval. In addition to the work in Unit 41 and along Eldron Boulevard, Units 11, 15, 18, 23, 31, 32, 42, 56, and Garvey Road (between Malabar Road and Garbelmann Street) were selected as Year One projects.
The GO Roads program is intended to address paving issues throughout the City of Palm Bay. While only Year One GO Roads projects have been approved by Council, projected paving schedules for Year Two through Year Five are available. Maps showing proposed future paving schedules, along with additional information and project updates, are available on the City of Palm Bay website.
