A proposed road from State Highway 77 in Bay County to Highway 98 in Walton County is up for discussion. Initially, the two lane Highway 388 that runs by the new airport will be widened to 4 lanes between Highway 79 and Highway 77.
The new addition to the roadway will extend from Highway 79 west to Highway 98 in Walton County just east of Peach Creek. I’m unsure at this point how they will get over the water – maybe use the Highway 79 bridge as the connector?
Through a series of public meetings, planners will devise strategic development plans and engineering ideas to bring together both new sections of the proposed roadway. Early estimates for the planning portion of the widening Highway 388 ring in at around 36 months.
Thursday, January 22 a public workshop will be held at the Panama City Beach City Hall at the intersection of Back Beach Road and Highway 79 from 5:30 to 7 pm.Print Story
