Letter to FDOT re Bayou Boulevard

Monday, February 23, 2009

Last week I sent the following letter to FDOT District 3 Secretary Larry Kelley:

Dear Secretary Kelley:

State Roadway No. 296 (Bayou Boulevard) from 12th Avenue to Firestone Boulevard located in the City of Pensacola is in desperate need of resurfacing. I am aware the project was originally scheduled for bid in the Fall of 2008, but because of budget constraints, it may be delayed until the Spring of 2010. While I understand and appreciate the financial difficulties the State of Florida is experiencing, it is little comfort to the thousands of motorists that travel on SR 296 each and every day and is one of the first impressions people arriving at Pensacola Gulf Coast Regional Airport have of Pensacola.

As the Pensacola City Council Member representing District 4 in which that portion of SR 296 falls, I urge you to give special consideration for emergency funding to mill and resurface that segment of Bayou Boulevard from 12th Avenue to Firestone Boulevard.

Should you or a member of your staff have specific questions, please have them contact Director of Public Works Al Garza at 850-435-1755.


Larry B. Johnson
City Council Member
District 4
