Pardon the interruption


A reminder that beginning April 7, 2014  at 10 p.m. Palm Bay Road and Minton Road will be closed to vehicle traffic.  A collapsed stormwater drain pipe beneath the intersection requires replacement.  The intersection could be closed well into the middle of June so motorists should have an alternate route.

Norfolk Parkway will be the designated detour road.   Westbound turns onto Palm Bay Road will not be allowed at Athens Drive, but Athens Drive will remain open for traffic moving north and south and turning to the east on Palm Bay Road. Right turn lanes onto Palm Bay Road will be closed on Minton Road. Also, lanes in the construction area on Palm Bay Road will be closed in both directions.

Alternate routes include Malabar Road, U.S. 192 or through residential streets, though potential gridlock at peak traffic hours would require motorists to plan ahead for likely delays. There is a Facebook page for this construction project so please pull up the page for current updates.
