Description:

The purpose of the proposed Gulf Coast Parkway is to improve mobility by increasing the regional transportation network, increase security of the Tyndall Air Force Base (AFB), enhance economic development in Bay and Gulf Counties, and improve emergency evacuation of Gulf and Bay Counties.

The Gulf Coast Parkway would provide what is essentially a missing link in the regional transportation network and would:

  • Stimulate economies within the region
  • Enhance regional mobility and hurricane evacuation
  • Increase Tyndall Air Force Base security
  • Relieve traffic congestion

FDOT has completed the Project Development and Environment (PD&E) Study for this project. Due to the length of the project and the availability of funding, the project will be constructed in segments. Whether an interim two-lane typical section is constructed initially and widened when traffic warrants, or the ultimate four-lane typical section is constructed, will depend on whether the segment being constructed uses an existing road alignment and traffic demand justifies the full four-lane. The first segment to be advanced has right-of-way acquisition scheduled for FY2019/2020 and construction scheduled for FY 2020-2021. All remaining segments, regardless of phase, are not planned to begin until after 2040. Environmental impacts will be re-evaluated as segments advance to subsequent phases in the transportation delivery process.
