Antioch Road in Crestview will be closed to through traffic October 26-29, 2021. Traffic must be detoured temporarily for these three days to allow Florida Gulf & Atlantic Railroad to repave their rail crossing for a smoother path for motorists.
Antioch Road will reopen for through traffic on Friday, October 30. Roadside message boards are being placed at the railroad crossing so that motorists have a chance to prepare.
“We are aware that Antioch Road is a significant daily route for many in our community,” said Okaloosa County Commissioner Nathan Boyles. “We are looking forward to a much smoother commute upon completion of the repave.”
Detour signage will be placed to use Highway 85 and US 90.
- Northbound motorists on Highway 85 at P.J. Adams Parkway are being asked to continue straight, north on Highway 85 to US 90.
- Motorists headed south from Highway 90 are asked to travel straight through to Highway 85 instead of cutting through Antioch Road and P.J. Adams Parkway.
