The Florida Department of Transportation (“FDOT”) plans to widen State Road 390 in Panama City. As an initial step toward the completion of this project, the FDOT’s contract engineers developed and recently released finalized construction plans that depict the nature and extent of anticipated property takings associated with the first segment of this project (the segment that begins at 23rd Street and ends east of County Road 2312).
The recently released construction plans indicate that the FDOT plans to acquire (by eminent domain, if necessary) 120 parcels of Panama City property to complete this segment of the State Road 390 widening project, and to do so, the FDOT has budgeted approximately $30 million in property acquisition funds for the fiscal years 2014-2018.
