Drainage improvements are underway on Highway 98 in Destin

Drainage improvements are underway on Highway 98 in Okaloosa County. These improvements include constructing two retention ponds on the south side of the U.S. 98/Scenic Highway 98 intersection.

In the picture above, crews are installing new drainage pipe and structures and pedestrian railing on the south side of the pond, adjacent to the Destin Beach Club parking lot.

Pond construction is part of a $33.5 million construction project that is widening 98 from four to six travel lanes between Airport Road and the Okaloosa/Walton County line.

The project is scheduled for completion in early 2021.

According to the Northwest Florida Daily News, DeSantis says he “will call for a special session if the Florida Senate does not decide the fate of suspended Okaloosa County School District Superintendent Mary Beth Jackson by May 3.

The Supreme Court ruled this week that the Florida Senate should decide whether to remove or reinstate Jackson.

I really don’t like covering arrests but I had to with this one. Popeyes in Crestview has only been open a month and already made headlines.

According to the Crestview Bulletin, two people have been arrested following an altercation inside the new Popeyes on Thursday afternoon that involved a knife or a box cutter!

LOVE THAT CHICKEN FROM POPEYES!

Ok, that’s all I have for you this morning! I hope you have a great Friday!
