The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) will reconstruct the intersection of State Road (S.R.) 30 (U.S. 98/Gregory Street) and S.R. 196 (Bayfront Parkway) at 17th Avenue.
The project will provide improvements to the northern landing of the Pensacola Bay Bridge and 17th Avenue intersection. The traffic signal currently at 17th Avenue will be removed and replaced with a flyover structure and roundabout.
The new flyover structure will have three, 11-foot travel lanes and shoulders that will carry U.S. 98 westbound traffic from the Pensacola Bay Bridge to Gregory Street and Bayfront Parkway. Beneath the flyover will be a 15-foot-wide, single-lane roundabout that will seamlessly move traffic between U.S. 98, Bayfront Parkway, and 17th Avenue.
Potential construction impacts
During construction, drivers can anticipate temporary detours, lane shifts, and nighttime lane closures limited to 8 p.m. to 5 a.m. Access to private property will be maintained at all times.
Pedestrians, bicyclists, and recreational users
The following will be in place for pedestrians, bicyclists, and recreational users during construction of the new 17th Ave
