The Florida-Alabama Transportation Planning Organization in the US has revealed the list of roads that will be upgraded as part of its Long Range Transportation Plan, which prioritises projects based on transportation needs through to 2035.

Work includes building bridges, widening heavily used roads, installing bicycle/pedestrian facilities, and expanding mass transit.

So far, money is available to fund projects, which includes widening Nine Mile road to four lanes in Escambia County for $21m, realigning Burgess road in Escambia County to four lanes for $8.3m, and widening US 90 in Milton to six lanes for $25.4m.

But the Pensacola Bay Area in Florida will require $7bn worth of projects over the next 25 years, but only $233m will be available to fund the projects.

Some projects are at planning stages, but have not commenced construction, according to

Other projects in the 2035 plan include a new $500m four-lane Pensacola bay bridge from Pensacola to Gulf Breeze, pedestrian projects worth $16.5m and a second toll bridge.

The TPO’s advisory committees will consider the proposed plan in their meeting on 10 November.
