Jackson County Supports I-10 Connector Project

Elected officials in a Panhandle border town are actively in support of a toll road to be built in or within close proximity of city limits.

City of Campbellton's motto can be seen on the town's water tower, "Gateway to Northwest, Florida".

The Jackson County municipality of 250 residents is nestled on Highway 231, along the Alabama line.

Preliminary plans have a toll road ramp placed somewhere between there and Graceville on Highway 2.

Last week, the city council approved a resolution in support of the highway. It could bring a needed boost in the form of jobs to the economically depressed region.

Unlike neighboring Washington County, Jackson County officials have voiced support of the toll road project.
