Welcome to the I-95 and Palm Bay Southern Interchange Project Development & Environment Study Website!
The Florida Department of Transportation conducted a Project Development and Environment (PD&E) Study to evaluate the new interchange at Mile Post 6.1 on Interstate 95 (I-95) in Brevard County, approximately 1.5 miles north of Micco Road. The project included the evaluation of a multi-lane connector road, approximately 4 miles in length that will link Micco Road to the southern terminus of the proposed Palm Bay Parkway at Babcock Street.
Project Development & Environment Study
A PD&E Study is comprised of several elements including the following items:
- Data Collection
- Engineering Analysis
- Environmental Evaluations
- Public Involvement
- Agency Coordination
- Final Approval
The Study Overview section of this website describes the study process in greater detail.
Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) has adopted the Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) with the accompanying Environmental Assessment (EA). FHWA has granted Location and Design Concept Acceptance (LDCA) for this project and it may now move forward to the next project phase. The interchange will be constructed as a design-build project starting the summer 2016. An electronic copy of the study's final documentation is provided in this website's Study Materials tab.
