Drivers will experience intermittent U.S. 98 east and westbound lane closures between Perry Avenue and the Brooks Bridge approach in Fort Walton Beach beginning Monday, February 13 through Thursday, February 16, from 9 p.m. to 5:30 a.m.
These closures are required to place low-profile barrier wall in the U.S. 98 median, which will require a slight shift of the U.S. 98 east and westbound travel lanes towards the outside of the roadway, according to FDOT.
- The new configuration will have a minor reduction in lane width and is expected to be in place for the next couple of months.
Additionally, drivers may experience the following traffic impacts Sunday, February 12 through Thursday, February 16, from 9 p.m. to 5:30 a.m. as crews perform utility work:
- U.S. 98 east and westbound alternating and intermittent lane closures between Perry Avenue and Pier Road.
- Santa Rosa Boulevard east and westbound alternating lane closures from east of Amberjack Drive to Ross Marler Park.
- Intermittent shoulder closures on Brooks Street, between Perry Avenue and Florida Blanca Place, and on Business Access Road.
