The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) will begin work in August on a $6.3 million project to mill and resurface Mary Esther Boulevard (State Road 393) from U.S. 98 to Beal Parkway in Okaloosa County.

This 6.9-mile project also includes minor widening of shoulders and opposing left turn lanes at multiple intersections, sidewalk repairs and upgrades at pedestrian crossings to comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requirements, as well as drainage improvements, traffic signal loop replacements, new signage and pavement markings.  

During construction, drivers and bicyclists may encounter periodic detours, lane closures and minor traffic shifts. Access to businesses and other private properties will be maintained at all times.

Lane closure restrictions on Mary Esther Boulevard have been divided into the following geographic locations:

  • U.S. 98 to Hollywood Boulevard, Sunday through Thursday evenings between 8:30 p.m. and 5:30 a.m.
  • Hollywood Boulevard to Beal Parkway, 8:30 p.m. to 5:30 a.m. daily.

The project is estimated for completion in spring 2024.
