“There will be a Project Development and Environmental study of State Road 79 from State Road 8 to the Alabama line,” said Paramore. “For those of you who are local you are aware of Project 79, where we’ve planned and have been funded for the widening of State Road 79 to the interstate, now we’re advancing it to the Alabama state line.”

Other proposed projects include: a resurfacing project for State Road 2 from Country Road 177 to Ten Mile Creek; a Small County Outreach Program to repave Thomas Drive from State Road 79/Waukesha Street to the Washington County Line and for Deacon Road from County Road 173/Jenkins Road to Sandpath Road; a Small County Road Assistance Program to repave County Road 183A from County Road 10A to Walton County Line; and a Transportation Regional Incentive Program to overlay the runway at Tri-County Airport.

“For Washington County there will be several projects to widen and repave roads to include adequate right-of-way,” said Paramore. “These projects’ funding will be spread out over the course of 2015, 2016 and 2017.”

These projects include State Road 77 from Bay County Line to North of Country Road 279, State Road 77 from North of County Road 279 to North Sunny Hills Entrance, State Road 77 from North Sunny Hills Entrance to one mile South of Wausau City Limits and State Road 77 from North of County Road 279 to North Sunny Hills Entrance.

“We have a lighting project because we still don’t have lighting at State Road 8 off of I-10, which is the Caryville exit,” said Paramore. “We also have a Project Development and Environmental Study for State Road 77 from North of Blue Lake Road to the Jackson County Line and that is the beginning study for 2018, which started in 2006 for a possible bypass alternative.”

There are resurfacing projects for State Road 20 from the Walton County Line to the Bay County Line and State Road 77 from South of State Road 8/I-10 to Fifth Street and a Small County Rural Assistance Program to pave Shakey Joe Road from end of pavement to County Road 284/River Road.

“Chipley Sidewalks Phase II is a combination of two different projects, where all work will be done under this one project,” said Paramore. “This includes Sinclair Street from County Road 273/South Boulevard to Forrest Drive and Third Street from Pine Avenue to County Road 273/South Boulevard.”
