State surprises county with PJ Adams Parkway improvements

"If the state's going to manage local projects, you'd think they'd let us know about it, but we're not going to turn our backs on it," Hofstad said.

A study on widening the P.J. Adams-Antioch Road corridor to four lanes and making it an anticipated bypass around Crestview's southwest quarter concluded last summer, but funding for that project is not expected until 2030 at the earliest, state officials have said.

Hofstad said his department hopes to accomplish some of the bypass project components in intervals as financing becomes available.

The recently announced safety improvement project is a first step.

"There are some dollars available," he said. "It's not going to be four-laning and it's not for a couple years — but at least it's something."
