Thursday Is Deadline For Public Input On Potential I-10, Beulah Road Interchange

November 18, 2020

The Florida Department of Transportation is conducting a study to consider the addition of a new I-10 interchange along I-10 in the vicinity of Beulah Road, and the deadline to submit public comments for consideration is Thursday, November 19.

The project includes the widening of Beulah Road from West Nine Mile Road to Isaacs Lane, the realignment from Isaacs Lane to West Kingsfield Road, a new interchange at I-10 and the widening of I-10 from the Florida/Alabama line to the Pensacola weigh station.

The project encompasses an area that will see a significant amount of a future development.

As a result of planned growth, there is a need to provide connectivity from new areas of development to the surrounding regional transportation system, according to FDOT. Additionally, there is a need to provide an alternative route that will reduce travel times and congestion within the study area.

    I’m all in for this new interchange but for GAWD’s sake don’t give a single new contract to Roads Inc until they hustle up and finish the one they’re on now! So tired of seeing NOTHING happening at night OR the weekends. Just who in the DOT does Roads Inc pay extra to keep them on the books but never doing anything on time!

    Will this also take over 5 years and cause constant traffic problems. Judging by Hwy 29 the answer to both these questions is YES… so I say NO.

    Please stop all this madness. Stop tearing up the land for neighborhoods. Stop people from coming here. Heck, let’s do things that make people want to leave so we can enjoy the home many of us have known our entire lives like our parents and grandparents before them did. I know that’ll never happen however, it would be nice to be able to stop all this “progress”. Jesus sacrificed his life for the sins of the world. I’d sacrifice mine just to make this area the place it used to be before all the Yanks, urban hipsters, and other infiltrators came and changed it. Jk (-: I know it’s not just you guys. Technology played a big part in it too.

    If FDOT is actually listening……..
    Please finish 9 mile road and HWY 29
    before you start anything else.

    I am in favor of these plans and believe that it would be very beneficial to my family and community to have closer access so the highway as well as a better way to enter Kingsfield. The current turn is not safe for a variety of reasons. It does concern me that construction here appears to take so long and could cause major issues with traffic in the meantime, but I believe that with proper planning it would be a positive change overall.
