Additional traffic updates
Northview Drive in Crestview, off of P.J. Adams, will be temporarily closed and adjusted to allow a proper connection to the future lanes of P.J. Adams Parkway. The county has opted to delay the Northview Drive closure until April 19.
Here are the adjustments and precautions taking place:
- Northview Drive will be temporarily closed and adjusted to allow a proper connection to the future lanes of P.J Adams Parkway but not until April 19.
- Delayed closure until April 19 to take advantage of Okaloosa Public School’s Spring Break and the reduced volume at peak travel times, that should correspond.
- The county is working with the City of Crestview to have law enforcement present along with a temporary traffic signal at P.J. Adams Parkway & Ashley Drive/ Villacrest Drive to help with roadway access.
- The temporary traffic signal would be removed once Northview Drive is reopened at P.J. Adams Parkway.
