The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) is conducting a Project Development and Environment (PD&E) study to analyze the existing characteristics, evaluate the community needs and impacts, and develop proposed conceptual improvements for U.S. 98 in Destin from Calhoun Avenue to Airport Road.

The intent of the project is to provide improved traffic mobility by adding capacity on U.S. 98 as well as providing intersection and operational improvements. This project will also address existing safety issues along the corridor.

What is a PD&E Study? 

A PD&E study is the formal process that develops and compares alternatives to determine a preferred action that meets project needs, while minimizing impacts to the social, natural, and physical environments. Engaging the public by sharing and receiving information is a key component of this process and is required by the National Environmental Policy Act.

What can you expect? 

Over the next several months, FDOT will collect and analyze data to help compare the project alternatives. A hybrid alternatives meeting and a hybrid public hearing will be held to provide interested persons the most current information on the project and allow an opportunity for input. Additional details will be provided as they become available. Updates will be posted to the website, www.nwflroads.com/virtualmeetings.
