Navarre Community Access Road Public Meeting Set for February 15

Posted on January 30, 2024 by Staff reports

Santa Rosa County is undergoing a Project Development and Environmental (PD&E) Study in an effort to create a Navarre community access road. A public kick-off meeting will be held from 5 to 7 p.m. on Thur., Feb. 15, located at Tiger Point Community Center, 1370 Tiger Park Lane in Gulf Breeze.

There has been a need to create an east-west connector as a parallel route for residents north of U.S. 98 in Navarre. The proposed access road will connect existing collector roads with a new road. The project limits are from Edgewood Drive on the western end to Panhandle Trail on the eastern end with U.S. 98 as the southern boundary. 

The PD&E Study will consist of developing and evaluating alternative road alignments to determine a preferred road location that will increase the safe and efficient movement of modes of transportation. The proposed new road will have safe pedestrian and bicyclist features.

During the PD&E Study an analysis will be done to review the project’s impact on the social, economic, cultural, natural, and physical environment and will develop the Location and Design Concept of the project in accordance with Santa Rosa County and FL Department of Transportation policy, procedures, and requirements. Proposed improvements will support all modes of transportation including roadway capacity, bicycles, and pedestrians. Project limits may be adjusted based on the findings of the PD&E Study.
