State Road 79 Alternatives Public Meeting Project Development and Environment Study

The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) will hold an alternatives public meeting concerning the State Road (S.R.) 79 Project Development and Environment (PD&E) Study from S.R. 8 (I-10) to the Florida/Alabama state line in Holmes County.  The meeting will be held Thursday, Nov. 10 from 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. CST at Northside Assembly of God, 1009 Rangeline Street, Bonifay.

The primary focus of this meeting is to present the alternatives that are currently being considered for the segment of the project from I-10 to just north of the city of Bonifay.

This project will evaluate potential improvements to north-south travel on S.R. 79 in Holmes County.  The intent of this meeting is to present to the public and officials the results from the analysis conducted on the seven build alternatives both in and around the city of Bonifay.  Public input received will be used to help identify alternatives that will be further developed. FDOT representatives will be available to discuss proposed improvements, answer questions, and receive comments.  Maps, drawings and other project information will be on display.
