Project Details

The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) is conducting a Project Development and Environment (PDE) study to develop and evaluate proposed conceptual improvements for State Road (S.R.) 30 (U.S. 98) from S.R.189 (Beal Parkway) to the west end of Brooks Bridge and north along S.R. 85 to south of Hollywood Boulevard.

This project is located within the City of Fort Walton Beach in Okaloosa County and is locally known as Around the Mound.

The purpose of the study is to address capacity and safety issues and re-route U.S. 98 around the downtown core in Fort Walton Beach. The PDE study is based on, and is consistent with, the recommendations of the City of Fort Walton Beach Downtown Master Plan (May 2019), and the FDOT Feasibility Study (August 2020). During the PDE study, conceptual alternatives will be developed. These alternatives will include roadway capacity, intersection, and bicycle/pedestrian improvements. Potential impacts associated with the alternatives will be analyzed, documented and presented for public input.

Note: All information is preliminary and subject to change without notice.
