Following the recent deaths along Highway 98 in Santa Rosa County, Representative Doug Broxson and Commissioner Lane Lynchard immediately began working with Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) Secretary, Ananth Prasad, Midway Fire Chief Jonathan Kanzigg, and many other local and state officials to find solutions to protect pedestrians and motorists in Santa Rosa County. FDOT has already begun a traffic study of Highway 98. Their first solution is to install a traffic light at the Greenbriar/Country Club intersection with Highway 98. In addition, an independent team of engineers will conduct a safety audit of all of Highway 98 in our area, starting before the end of May. The timing of the study should coincide well with the upcoming resurfacing project on Highway 98, which is scheduled to begin next year. “The gratifying aspect of this process is that when local and state governments have a need, we are able to find real solutions to real problems. I want to congratulate Secretary Prasad and his team for their quick actions in helping us begin to resolve the dangerous situation along Highway 98 in Santa Rosa County,” said Representative Broxson.
