Sidewalk, Pedestrian Improvements Underway Along Highway 29

November 30, 2015

Numerous pedestrian related improvements are underway over a 15-mile stretch of Highway 29 in North Escambia, most of them in Century.

The $893,000 project consists of guardrail upgrades, sidewalk replacement, pedestrian railing, ditch pavement, and signalized pedestrian crossings at various locations from north of Champion Drive in McDavid to the Alabama state line in Century.

In Century, the project will include “new sidewalk construction in areas where there is currently no sidewalk, removal and replacement of damaged sidewalk,  installation of handrails, curb ramps  for ADA, detectable warning ramps and replacement of pedestrian signal crossings,” Tanya Branton of the Florida Department of Transportation said recently.

Work is expected to be completed in about three months.

    Glad to see this. Clean up the gateway into Florida. Hope to see the landscape project by FDOT begin soon. Enforce the speed limit through here too.
