Beulah Beltway Public Meeting Scheduled

October 17, 2017

A Beulah Beltway Alternative Corridor Evaluation Public Meeting will be held Monday, October 30 from 6-8 p.m. at Hillcrest Baptist Church at 800 East Nine Mile Road.

The meeting will provide the public an opportunity to review project materials, ask questions of Escambia County staff and provide comments about the proposed Beulah Beltway project. Agenda items include an overall discussion of the project, northern route overview, southern route overview and discussion of future steps for the project.

A previous Beulah Beltway meeting in early August saw tempers flare and the air conditional falter asan estimated 250 people tried to pack their way into the public meeting at the Plainview Baptist Church on West Nine Mile Road. That prompted county officials to announce that another meeting would be held in a larger venue.

The Beulah Beltway will serve to connect Nine Mile Road in Beulah to Highway 29 somewhere in the area from south of West Quintette Road to Barrineau Park Road. There’s no funding available yet for the northern potion of the project.

    A Alex I don’t know what your talking about I’m only 35 and I remember when they built the newer bridge that’s by pin air now and redid all that was they talking about making it wider then? I think a concern should be 9mile and Beulah road that is a real cluster of a mess. And with the new school coming I hope they build a belt way fast because traffic is awful in the morning and evening.

    I think it is good they narrowed down the choices. Hope it get down ahead of schedule and less than budget.

    Looking forward to the meeting. I’d like to know why all the routes are about 4 times wider than I-10?

    Like the 9 mile road expansion, took 20 years to begin widening the road.
    This will take 30 years to develope into a reality. By then the county will surely grow further north due to the two rivers bordering east and west. Cost of land will skyro ket also by then. So county board, you going to plan for a short term fix or a longer term fix or a fix for your own pockets
