Project Details

This is a four-lane construction project on SR 388 from SR 79 to east of Northwest Florida Beaches International Airport. Improvements along the four-mile project include a new traffic signal at the new SR 388 and SR 79 intersection alignment, a multi-lane roundabout at the entrance to Northwest Florida Beaches International Airport, a new bridge over Crooked Creek, a twelve-foot shared-use path along the south side, and buffered bike lanes. Once the project is complete, the former SR 388 at SR 79 will become CR 388. For more roundabout information, visit

Traffic Impacts

Much of the work on SR 388 will take place off the existing roadway. During the roundabout construction drivers can anticipate nighttime temporary lane restrictions near the Northwest Florida Beaches International Airport entrance. No lane closures will occur from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Friday, and 5 a.m. to 7 p.m. Saturday or Sunday.
