FDOT Begins Work At Beulah Road, Mobile Highway

April 13, 2018

The Florida Department of Transportation is set to begin work to improve Mobile Highway at Beulah Road in Escambia County.

Plans include widening  Mobile Highway east and westbound right turn lanes, drainage improvements, widening Beulah Road to accommodate north and southbound left-turn lanes, and installing a traffic signal.

Much of the work will take place behind a low profile concrete barrier wall to minimize traffic impacts. No lane closures will be allowed from Monday-Friday from 6:30 to 8:30 a.m. or from 1 to 3 p.m. In additio,  no lane closures will be scheduled during special school events.

The project will cost about $1.5 million.

    It would be great if you could place a planned picture of project. Having to deal with this issue (crossing Mobile hwy every day) I wonder about the traffic signal. If it is just a red/green the problem of those wanting to go straight (towards 9 mile road) will still encounter those who turn left onto mobile hwy (The 85% who fail to yield or use turn signals). Hopefully the light will have a separate green and a long left turn lane to accommodate the long back ups on the north portion of that intersection. (And please make that section of road between 9 mile and Mobile hwy 4 lane)

    Installing a traffic signal is listed in the article as part of the project.

    What this intersection needs most is a traffic light! I know people who were injured at this intersection at night and every day when I drive straight through I see tons of cars backed up on Beulah trying to turn left. I try to slow down every time to be safe yet people trying to pull out from Beulah constantly get close and pull out in front of me. This intersection has seen many accidents in the past few years. Since DOT can put a traffic light at Beulah and 9-Mile, then they can put one here also!!!
