ORLANDO, Fla. – Road closures are expected this month in Brevard County as Brightline continues construction of its higher-speed rail line from Miami to Orlando International Airport.
In Melbourne, two railroad crossings will be closed through February, shutting down the road in that area.
Starting this Friday, the railroad crossing at Eau Gallie Boulevard west of U.S. 1 will be closed through Monday, Feb. 27.
Motorists will be detoured as a result:
- Eastbound Eau Gallie Boulevard traffic will travel south on Apollo Boulevard to Sarno Road, travel east on Sarno Road to U.S. 1 and travel north on U.S. 1 to Eau Gallie Boulevard.
- Westbound Eau Gallie Boulevard traffic will travel south on U.S. 1 to Sarno Road, travel west on Sarno Road to Apollo Boulevard and travel north on Apollo Boulevard to Eau Gallie Boulevard.
Prospect Avenue is also closed at the railroad crossing west of U.S. 1 and will stay that way throughout the month and until the work is finished.
