LAUREL HILL —  The city council has added two more road projects for the West Florida Regional Planning Council.

City officials have suggested resurfacing Earl Campbell Road and adding sidewalks for New Ebenezer and Robbins Road.

The regional planning council has contracted with the Florida Department of Transportation to gather input from rural areas.

Since 2010, regional planner Christie Johnson has met with city officials to take suggestions and give updates on which roads the county and the FDOT have planned for road repairs or additions.

One recent result of FDOT’s rural work program is Laurel Hill's main road, Johnson said during Thursday’s city council meeting.

"State Road 85 was on the list last year with resurfacing," Johnson said. "From what I understand, it’s almost complete."

The project should be complete within two weeks, she said.
