The Florida Department of Transportation (“FDOT”) plans to resurface U.S. 90 from Edison Drive to Lynch Street in Escambia County. To complete this project, the FDOT’s contract engineers recently developed and released updated construction plans. These updated construction plans depict that the FDOT anticipates acquiring (by eminent domain, if needed) seven parcels of Escambia County property, and to do so the FDOT has budgeted $640,000 in right-of-way acquisition money for the fiscal year 2016.
