Temporary Sykes Creek Closure Schedule

posted Feb 6, 2018, 5:37 AM by VDP Community   [ updated Jul 23, 2018, 1:47 PM ]

The waterway is currently open 24X7, however highway traffic over the bridge is still closed.


Posted Feb 6, 2018
Access to/from Skes Creek and the Barge Canal will be temporarily periodically closed.
Brevard County Commission approved an emergency resolution Thursday to repair the Sykes Creek Bridge on Sea Ray Drive, damaged by Hurricane Irma.

The resolution enables the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to move ahead with shoring up the bridge and frees up Federal Emergency Management Agency reimbursement for the cost – 100 percent for the first 30 days and 75 percent thereafter.

The Corps will shore up the bridge, which will cost about $1.1 million, county officials said. Then the repairs to the bridge itself will cost another $1.5 million. County officials estimate the repairs will take 12 to 18 months.

Brevard officials said the repaired bridge will have the same clearance for boats as it has now.

32 launches planned for 2017

posted Jan 11, 2017, 2:59 PM by VDP Community

The Space Coast could see as many as 32 launches by five different rockets in 2017, the vice commander of the Air Force's 45th Space Wing said.

That would easily surpass the 23 launch operations supported in 2016, the busiest year in two decades.

“Just a tremendous year,” said Col. Walt Jackim, in a “State of the Wing” presentation to the National Space Club Florida Committee in Cape Canaveral. “It’s only going to get busier for us.”

The first of 2017 is planned for Thursday, Jan 19th by United Launch Alliance with an Atlas V launch.   It's the first of at least seven launches ULA plans from Florida, including six on the Atlas V and one by a Delta IV.
