Highway 77 Project

It may be a decade away from reality, but Florida Gov. Jeb Bush says the four-laning of Highway 77 from the beaches to the state line is a necessity.

Property owners along the highway in Chipley recently got a chance to see several proposed routes and study aerial maps of highway 77.

The Florida Department of Transportation is looking at several possible routes to four-lane. Project engineers want to receive all public input before making a final decision.

The road is used as a major hurricane evacuation route from the beaches.

Wausau Mayor Pro-tem Roger Dale Hagan says he appreciates the opportunity to make his voice heard with a lot of factors to consider.

The Florida Department of Transportation hopes to have a final plan for the four-laning of Highway 77 completed within a year.
