Beginning this week, the U.S. 98 eastbound travel lanes between Perry Avenue and Brooks Bridge in Fort Walton Beach will be shifted toward the outside of the roadway onto temporary travel lanes. 

  • A subsequent shift of the U.S. 98 westbound travel lanes is estimated to occur within six weeks.

This configuration will be in place while crews construct the new westbound Brooks Bridge structure. Four U.S. 98 travel lanes (two eastbound and two westbound) will remain open throughout the construction.

This work is part of the $171 million Brooks Bridge Replacement Project that includes constructing two new, parallel bridges that will increase capacity to six travel lanes from the current four-lane bridge that opened in 1966. Project completion is estimated for summer 2027.
