The Florida Department of Transportation, in cooperation with the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and the U.S. Department of Defense at Tyndall Air Force Base, is making improvements to SR 30 (US 98) Tyndall Parkway through Tyndall Air Force Base in Bay County. The project (Project No. 431684-1) involves a one-mile segment of US 98 centered at the intersection of US 98 and Airey Avenue/Tyndall Drive at the Tyndall AFB main gate. The proposed improvements include a new intersection configuration to separate Tyndall AFB traffic from through traffic and an overpass at Louisiana Avenue to improve on-base traffic flow.
The project will necessitate the relocation of approximately 2,654 feet of 20” potable water main owned by Bay County and serving both Tyndall Air Force Base and the City of Mexico Beach. The estimated cost of that relocation is $1,500,000.00.
