Project Location Map
The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) is conducting a Project Development and Environment (PD&E) study to assess present features, consider community needs and impacts, and develop possible improvements for State Road (S.R.) 20. The project limits of the PD&E study extend from Cat Mar Road in Okaloosa County to east of S.R. 79 in Washington County, approximately 34 miles. Although the PD&E project limits extend this distance, the Build Alternative proposes improvements limited to S.R. 20 between King Road and County Road (C.R.) 3280 (Black Creek Boulevard) in Walton County.
Address capacity and regional mobility needs along S.R. 20
Provide multi-modal features such as bicycle and sidewalks (where appropriate)
Enhance roadway safety
Minimize social and environmental impacts
The next step is to include your input from this virtual project update into the decision-making process. The final Build Alternative will be presented at a Public Hearing in the fall of 2020.
Based on traffic projections conducted as part of this study, widening of S.R. 20 is only proposed from King Road to C.R. 3280 (Black Creek Boulevard). A typical section is a visual representation of what the new roadway would look like in various segments of the project. The image shows the three different typical sections that are being looked at for this project. The improvements include widening to four lanes with pedestrian features described below:
The Rural Typical from King Road to west of Blueberry Road and west of Joe Campbell Road to C.R. 3280 (Black Creek Boulevard) with on street bike lanes
Urban Typical from west of Blueberry Road to U.S. 331 with a 12-foot multi-use path and 6-foot sidewalk
Transition Typical from U.S. 331 to west of Joe Campbell Road with a 12-foot multi-use path and 5-foot sidewalk
As a part of the PD&E process, a “best fit” Build Alternative has been developed and evaluated for potential environmental impacts, as well as its satisfaction of the project’s Purpose and Need. This Evaluation Matrix summarizes the potential benefits and impacts to widening S.R. 20 between King Road and Black Creek Boulevard in Walton County. As the proposed option continues to be refined, impacts to social, environmental, cultural, and physical resources will be avoided and minimized to the extent practicable.
The concept plans display the Build Alternative currently proposed for the corridor. The proposed S.R. 20 widening will generally occur on the existing alignment. In the map below click on the study area related to you to zoom to plans with the detailed improvements shown.
