Don’t Get Run Over on Bayshore: Joint County/City Project Begins to Link Sidewalks

Facebook commentators aplenty have made note of the fact that the current city sidewalk, which ends at 11th Street did not meet up with the Okaloosa County Half-Cent Sales Tax project on Redwood from John Sims Parkway to Valparaiso Boulevard, which is wrapping up soon.

At last month’s City Council and County Commissioners meeting – both entities agreed to split the costs of linking the two sidewalks. The total cost of the project weighs in at about $180,000.

Good News: The project to link the two sidewalks is underway, according to Okaloosa County Public Information Officer, April Sarver. Concrete pouring could be as little as a week away – depending on the weather.
