St. Johns Heritage Parkway Alternative Corridor Evaluation
Thank you for visiting the project website for the St. Johns Heritage Parkway Alternative Corridor Evaluation Study. Please check back regularly for additional information.
Brevard County is conducting a transportation planning study, known as an Alternative Corridor Evaluation (ACE). The study is being conducted to evaluate new roadway corridors to connect the existing segments of the St. Johns Heritage Parkway. The limits of the study are from Babcock Street to Malabar Road in Brevard County and the City of Palm Bay, a distance of approximately 14 miles. The project location map is provided and described in the Project Files below.
An ACE Study involves a range of technical evaluations including collecting data collection and analyzing existing conditions, a range of engineering and environmental evaluations, public engagement and agency coordination. The goal of the study is to identify a corridor that can be advanced to the next phase of project development, which in this case would be a Project Development and Environment (PD&E) Study; however, there is currently no funding in place beyond the ACE. A project of this magnitude generally takes between 10 and 12 years to complete depending on the availability of funding.
The study began in January 2020 and will take approximately 24 months to complete. Two public meetings will take place throughout the study. Additionally, Brevard County staff will provide updates at the Space Coast Transportation Planning Organization (T.P.O) board meetings, Brevard County Commission and Palm Bay City Council meetings. Brevard County will also hold four Working Group meetings with representatives from local, regional and state agencies over the course of the project. The study schedule is provided and described in the Project Files below.
