County Road 511 (Brevard County, Florida)

Consisting of a north-south street and an east-west avenue in the Melbourne, Florida, area, the 8.1-mile-long Brevard County Road 511 is locally known as John Rodes Boulevard and Aurora Road. The southern terminus of CR 511 is an intersection with New Haven Avenue (US 192-SR 500) in June Park, just outside the city limits of West Melbourne and three blocks from a diamond interchange between New Haven Avenue and Interstate 95 (SR 9); the eastern terminus is an intersection with Harbor City Boulevard (US 1-SR 5) in the Eau Gallie section of Melbourne.

John Rodes Boulevard extends four miles north-south between US 192 and Aurora Road, which continues CR 511 as an east-west commercial and residential street. Until the late 1990s, the southernmost 3.0 miles of CR 511/John Rodes Boulevard (south of Eau Gallie Boulevard/SR 518) was signed by Florida Department of Transportation as State Road 511. The former State Road serves as an access road for I-95. The southernmoust 3.0 miles of John Rodes Boulevard has several communities along it. One of these is Hammock Trace Preserve, which is about 1 mile south of Eau Gallie Blvd on John Rodes Blvd. Hammock Trace Preserve is a new neighborhood being developed by Pence Land Development of Melbourne, FL. The houses are being built by two home builders: Maronda and Adams. There are two streets in Hammock Trace Preserve: Palladian Way and Aria Way. These streets do not yet appear on Google Maps or Mapquest because the neighborhood is so new.

While Aurora Road has maintained its importance as a commercial and residential avenue, the character of John Rodes Boulevard has changed since the 1980s due to population growth in June Park, Melbourne, West Melbourne, and nearby Palm Bay. Urbanization has replaced much of the woodland on both sides on the former SR 511 as trees gave way to business and industrial parks, trailer parks, and suburban residential developments.
