Federal Highway Administration

Environmental Impact Statement: Walton and Bay Counties, Florida

AGENCY: Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), DOT.

ACTION: Notice of intent.


SUMMARY: The FHWA is issuing this notice to advise the public that an 
Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) will be prepared for a proposed 
highway project in Walton and Bay Counties, Florida.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Ms. Cathy Kendall, Environmental 
Specialist, Federal Highway Administration, 545 John Knox Road, Suite 
200, Tallahassee, FL, 32303, Telephone (850) 553-2225

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The FHWA, in partnership with the Florida 
Department of Transportation (FDOT) will prepare an EIS for a proposal 
to develop a new alignment extension of CR 388 from SR 79 in Bay 
County, FL westward to SR 30 (US 98) in Walton County, FL. The FDOT 
refers to this project as West Bay Parkway, Segment 1. This proposed 
Segment 1 project would extend CR 388 to the west from its current 
western terminus at SR 79 and provide a new four-lane divided highway 
and potentially a new high level bridge across the Intracoastal 
Waterway (ICWW). Depending on the alternative selected, the project is 
approximately 9 to 12 miles in length.
    Alternatives under consideration include (1) Taking no action; (2) 
widening SR 30 (US 98) to a six or eight lane divided roadway; (3) 
alternate corridors.
    Letters describing the proposed action and soliciting comments will 
be sent to appropriate Federal, State, and local agencies, and to 
private organizations and citizens who have expressed interest in this 
    A series of public meetings in Santa Rosa Beach in Walton County, 
and Panama City Beach in Bay County began in April 2010 and will 
continue to be held through December 2012. In addition a public hearing 
will be held. Public notice will be given for the time and place of the 
meetings and hearing. The Draft EIS will be made available for public 
and agency review and comment. Additional project information can be 
found at the following web address: http://www.westbayparkway.com.
    To ensure that the full range of issues related to the proposed 
action is addressed and all significant issues identified, comments and 
suggestions are invited from all interested parties. Comments or 
question concerning this proposed action and the EIS should be directed 
to the FHWA at the address provided above.
