Project Details

This project is needed to improve capacity, operational, and multi-modal issues on SR 292 (Sorrento Road/Gulf Beach Highway) from SR 727 (Fairfield Drive) to SR 295 (Navy Boulevard) in Escambia County.

This project will implement an alternative that will "best fit" on the existing alignment, accommodate on street parking and provide multi-modal solutions.

This roadway system is currently operating at an unacceptable Level of Service(LOS), LOS F and has a crash rate higher than the statewide average to similar type roadways.

The study will investigate the following:

• Widening the existing corridor from two (2) lanes to four (4) lanes.

• Enhancing multi-modal features such as bicycle lanes, sidewalks, and transit features.

• Increasing roadway safety.

• Minimizing environmental and social impacts due to the above improvements.

Traffic Impacts

Why is the Project Needed?

The Sorrento Road/Gulf Beach Highway corridor, from Blue Angel Parkway to Navy Boulevard, is currently experiencing traffic congestion and is expected to have a failing level of service by 2024 for the entire project limits. In addition, the lack of both capacity and effective bicycle/pedestrian features has led this roadway to have more crashes than other similar roadw
