Babcock Street is a major commuter road for Palm Bay, one of the fastest-growing cities in the United States since 1980. The northern half (in Melbourne) features shopping centers and the main campus of Florida Institute of Technology; the southern half (in Palm Bay) passes through a large housing development.

County Road 507

South of SR 514, Babcock Road becomes a signed County Road 507 (CR 507), which continues 13 miles (21 km) southward to the boundary between Brevard County and Indian River County, four miles (6 km) north of Fellsmere. The road continues as County Road 507 to the intersection of County Road 512. Major destinations the road passes through are Port Malabar Industrial Park, Fountainhead Memorial Park, Greenwood Plantation, Deer Run, Sebastian Canal, and Downtown Fellsmere.
