Construction starts the week of Jan. 20 on State Road 79 in Panama City Beach. Crews will begin resurfacing the corridor between Front Beach Road and Panama City Beach Parkway.
Workers will pave a little more than one-half mile of roadway and shoulders, upgrade curb ramps, replace traffic signal loops, and place new signs and pavement marking. To minimize impacts to businesses and residences along the corridor, work involving lane closures will be performed at night between the hours of 6 p.m. and 6 a.m. The project is anticipated to be completed spring 2014.
Driver traveling U.S. 98 between Heather Drive and the Thomas Drive Flyover can expect intermittent delays Sunday, Jan. 12 through Saturday, Jan 18. Workers are placing draining, performing sidewalk work and laying sod at various locations along the corridor.
Construction activities are weather dependent and may be delayed or re-scheduled in the event of inclement weather. Motorists, pedestrian and bicyclists are reminded to travel with care through the work zone and to watch for construction equipment and workers entering and exiting the roadway.
