FDOT to host public meeting on Navarre Parkway safety concerns

Posted on June 27, 2016 by From Staff Reports

The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) will hold a public hearing  concerning safety improvements to U.S. 98 (State Road 30/Navarre Parkway) at Constitution Drive and Navarre School Road.  The hearing will be held Thursday, June 30, 2016 from 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. CDT at St. Augustine’s Episcopal Church, 7810 Navarre Parkway, Navarre.

The intent of the project is to improve safety at the existing median openings and intersections.  Proposed improvements include median opening modifications, right and left turn lane construction, minor widening, and minor drainage upgrades.  Additional right-of-way will be needed at Navarre School Drive to construct the safety improvements.  Bids for construction are scheduled to be received summer 2018.

The hearing will be held in an open-house format beginning at 5:30 p.m. with a brief presentation provided at 6 p.m.   Maps, drawings and other project information will be on display.  Public participation is solicited without regard to race, color, national origin, age, sex, religion, disability, or family status.
