More Sidewalks on South Thomas Drive

by February 11, 2009 • 3 comments


Well, the County is doing it again – using your tax dollars for improvement.  Good for you Bay County.  The project started back in June and paved sidewalks from the intersection of Joan Avenue to Ocean Street.  Now the project continues from Ocean street down to Venus Street.

This phase in the construction includes the installation of a stormwater system consiting of three 18 inch diameter cross drain pipes under Thomas Drive bewtween Choctaw and Walnut Streets. Over the last 10 days sections of Thomas Drive have been closed on one side to accomodate the construction.

I think the sidewalks are wonderful and long overdue. Aside from the safety and aesthetic improvements, they make our community more walkable and promote exercise. Since the completion of the sidewalk on North Lagoon, you can always find residents walking, jogging, riding their bikes and walking their dogs. I’m looking forward to when you can circle the entire lagoon by sidewalk. Thanks for the update Jason.

As a new permanent resident of Panama City Beach it’s way wonderful to see the new sidewalks going in. I like my pickup well enough, but nothing beats walking and biking in this area. Please keep them coming and please consider installing safe bike lanes also. Thank you. Thank you.
