Front Beach Rd.
Road construction and building projects may just slow your cruise down the beach this coming Spring along Front Beach Road. A major project recently got underway between the intersection of S. Thomas Dr. and Front Beach Rd. to R. Jackson Blvd (Edgewater Shopping center). This one will be going on for a while… eventually it will look like the now completed section of S. Thomas Dr., use some caution here, narrow roadway and no turn lanes.
Next up are two beach front building projects. A new hotel is going up just West of Hooters along Front Beach Rd., the second hotel project is near Shuckum’s. This one will probably cause some additional delay in an area that is already traditionally jammed up during the Rally, (or almost any weekend).
On the way into town for the Rally you might run into some delay in Panama City at 23rd and 98 at the Hathaway bridge. Major reconstruction. of the intersection here. As always use a little extra caution in these areas!
