The Florida Department of Transportation (“FDOT”) plans to widen State Road 390 in Panama City. As an initial step in the progress of this project, the FDOT recently released new, 90% construction plans for one of the three segments of this project (the segment that runs from east of Baldwin Road to Jenks Avenue). These construction plans indicate that the FDOT anticipates acquiring (by eminent domain, if necessary) 53 parcels of Panama City property and to acquire this property, the FDOT has budgeted $12.4 million in right-of-way acquisition funds for the fiscal years 2014-2017.
