Project Details

Early construction activities are taking place in preparation for the widening and improvements of the 4.25 mile stretch of SR 30 (US 98) from Bayshore Road to Portside Drive in Santa Rosa County. Crews are currently focused on utility relocations, clearing trees and shrubs, excavation, and drainage improvements. As part of the upgraded drainage system, the project includes construction of five stormwater ponds. The ponds will capture stormwater runoff and help prevent localized flooding. They will also provide water quality benefits

Major roadway construction activities are anticipated to begin Fall 2021, with an estimated completion date of early 2025. Project improvements include widening 4.25 miles of U.S. 98 from a 4-lane to a 6-lane urban facility with a raised median; safety and drainage upgrades; resurfacing S.R. 281 from U.S. 98 to Garcon Point Bridge; extending the existing shared-use path on the south side of U.S. 98 to Gondolier Boulevard; and new signage and pavement markings.

US 98 FINs: 220440-1-52-01, 220440-1-56-01, 220440-1-56-04, 220440-1-56-05, 220440-1-56-06

Traffic Impacts

There will be no traffic impacts associated with the construction of the ponds, but nearby residents and businesses may experience some noise during pond construction. When major roadway construction activities begin, motorists traveling along U.S. 98 can anticipate intermittent lane closures and restrictions 9 p.m.- 5:30 a.m.
