|Palm Bay Parkway finally begins
|Date Posted: 7/4/2010
The Palm Bay Council selected a 2-mile stretch of roadway as the first section of the long-discussed parkway designed to loop around Palm Bay. The project marks the first time officials will actually turn dirt on the 22-year old dream for a parkway.
"I think it would be a signature start to this project if we can serve a legitimate public need," Councilman Milo Zonka said.
The cost for the two mile two lane road from Malabar Road north to Pace Dr will be $5.2 million. Most of the funds will come from a $4 million grant allotted for the project in the state's budget.
This is an important milestone for Waterstone residents as it is the beginning of planned parkway which will terminate at Micco road and pass within a few hundred yards of our southern border. It also, adds importance and creditability of the I-95 Interchange as discussed in another posting.
Walking to Publix may no longer be a just a dream anymore.
