FDOT considers widening Back Beach Road in PCB

By  | 

PANAMA CITY BEACH, FL -- (WTVY) FDOT is holding a public hearing next month about the matter.
Officials say there's a need to widen the road to relieve traffic congestion.
FDOT is conducting a traffic study focusing on emergency evacuation enhancement and intersection improvements.
Some locals say the expansion is a good idea.
"Just imagine when Pier Park West comes in and they're adding stuff all the time and they're building the new condominiums and yeah I think it needs to be widened as soon as possible."
The project also includes sidewalks and bicycle lanes on both sides of the road.
