Micco Road Bridge Closure at Sottile Canal begins on Wednesday, Jan. 31

MICCO, FL. -- Micco Road will be closed to thru traffic for replacement of the existing bridge over the Sottile Canal, located southwest of Barefoot Bay in south Brevard. The road closure is expected to start on Wednesday, Jan. 31, lasting for a period of up to eight months.

When the road closure begins, all business and residential traffic will be detoured. Informational signs on the closure will be in place and detours associated with this project will be conspicuously posted to alert drivers of the closed road. Brevard County Public Works has worked proactively with Brevard County Fire Rescue and our other public safety partners to ensure emergency response time is not impacted. In addition, we have worked with Brevard County Solid Waste Services, Brevard Public Schools and the US Postal Service to minimize any impact to their regular operations.

Detour information:
•        Between Babcock Street and US-1 the east-west route will become Grant Road to Old Dixie Highway to Shell Pit Road instead of Micco Road

The current bridge, constructed in 1938, has surpassed its life expectancy. The replacement bridge includes two 11-foot travel lanes, 8-foot paved shoulders, and a barrier protected 5-foot sidewalk. The new bridge will also meet current standards and provide a better experience for our residents and visitors. The Brevard County Public Works department will be proactively working with the contractor to expeditiously complete the work and reopen the road sooner, if possible.  

As the Lakes at Saint Sebastian subdivision is anticipated to be the most impacted by this closure, we are working directly with the Homeowners Association to address any concerns. Residents in this community may contact your HOA to submit inquiries. For any additional comments or concerns, please call Public Works at 321-617-7202.
