Palm Bay Florida has been planning the Heritage Parkway for decades.
The FDOT is nearing completion of access to the Parkway by adding Exit #166 to Interstate 95 near the town of Micco.
This video progress survey shows the current state on the second stage of the Parkway system. The first stage, now open, runs from Malabar road north to state road 192 with plans to end at SR518 in Melbourne Florida.
The entire project will allow residents of the Northwest section of the City an escape or evacuation route in times of emergencies such as Hurricanes. Currently residents are funneled into Minton road, a road that congests with normal rush hour traffic.
