The Florida Department of Transportation (“FDOT”) plans to widen State Road 390 in Panama City, Florida. To do so, the FDOT has divided the project into three segments. One of these segments runs from east of County Road 2312 to Jenks Avenue, and as an important step to complete this segment of the State Road 390 widening project, the FDOT recently released right-of-way maps that depict the property the FDOT plans to acquire (by eminent domain, if needed) for this segment of the State Road 390 widening project.
These initial right-of-way maps indicate that the FDOT plans to acquire 41 parcels of Panama City property to complete this segment of the State Road 390 project, and to do so, the FDOT has budgeted $12.4 million in right-of-way acquisition funds between the fiscal years 2014-2017. Fixel & Willis, a Florida law firm that represents private property owners in eminent domain matters, has obtained the FDOT’s recently released right-of-way maps and has studied them for its affected clientele.
