FDOT to begin State Road 388 construction
From the Florida Department of Transportation:
Chipley, FL – Construction activities to widen State Road (S.R.) 388 in Bay County will begin Monday, Feb. 18. The S.R. 388 project will construct a four-lane roadway from S.R. 79 to east of Northwest Florida Beaches International Airport.
Improvements along the four-mile project include a new traffic signal at the new S.R. 388 and S.R. 79 intersection alignment, a multi-lane roundabout at the entrance to Northwest Florida Beaches International Airport, twin 720-foot bridges over Crooked Creek, a twelve-foot shared-use path along the south side, and buffered bike lanes. Once the project is complete, the former S.R. 388 at S.R. 79 will become County Road 388. Work is scheduled to be completed fall 2023.
All planned construction activities are weather dependent and may be delayed or rescheduled in the event of inclement weather. Motorists are reminded to pay attention to the speed limit when traveling through the construction area, to watch for construction equipment entering and leaving the roadway, and to use caution when driving through the work zone. Speeding fines are doubled when workers are present.
