FDOT: Temporary Closure of Intersection at 17th Avenue and Bayfront Parkway Begins Nov. 30
The intersection of North 17th Avenue and Bayfront Parkway will close to all vehicular, bicycle, and pedestrian traffic beginning Monday, Nov. 30 as construction activities advance for the new 17th Avenue interchange. The new interchange will include a flyover from the new westbound Pensacola Bay Bridge and a roundabout. The intersection will remain closed until the Pensacola Bay Bridge repairs are completed in spring 2021.
The Visitor’s Center and the adjacent boat launch will remain accessible using 17th Avenue. In addition, the ramp from 17th Avenue to East Gregory Street will remain open. Eastbound drivers on Bayfront Parkway should use North 14th Avenue as a detour route.
