FDOT said the project goes from north of the Bayou Grande Bridge to Gulf Beach Highway/Barrancas Avenue (S.R. 292.)

The project also includes curb and sidewalk improvements constructed to comply with Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requirements, traffic signalization upgrades, and placement of new signs and pavement markings, according to FDOT.
