17th Avenue Interchange Detour
This graphic depicts the new, temporary traffic configuration exiting the bridge in Pensacola as work continues on the 17thAvenue interchange. Drivers have access to a new “slip ramp” that connects to 17thAvenue northbound. Continuing straight will take vehicles over a newly constructed flyover bridge to Gregory Street.
In the final configuration, a new single-lane roundabout will be available beneath the flyover bridge. The roundabout will replace the traffic signal formerly at 17th Avenue and Bayfront Parkway.
Completion of all construction, which includes both the eastbound (Pensacola to Gulf Breeze) and westbound (Gulf Breeze to Pensacola) bridges, as well as the new 17th Avenue interchange is planned for January 2022.
