CHIPLEY The Florida Department of Transportation will hold two final recommendation meetings concerning the update to the Interstate 10 Master Plan for Okaloosa, Walton, Holmes, Washington and Jackson counties. 



The first meeting is July 31 at the Crestview Community Center, 1446 Commerce Drive, Crestview. The second is Aug. 7 in the First Baptist Church Youth Building, 1300 S. Blvd., Chipley.  Both meetings will be held from 5:30-6:30 p.m.  and will provide the same information.  A brief presentation is at 5:45 p.m.  



The purpose of the Interstate Master Plan is to develop an integrated transportation system that is economically efficient, environmentally sound, and moves people and goods in an energy-efficient manner.



The plan will identify and recommend mobility enhancement alternatives that serve high speed, high volume travel, including long trips and regional commerce as well as outline a process of protecting the right-of-way necessary to accommodate future needs. Your involvement in the master planning effort will help to shape I-10 in this part of the state for decades to come.
