CRESTVIEW — The Crestview Public Services Department has been informed that road contractors for Okaloosa County will be changing traffic patterns on P.J. Adams Parkway starting on Sunday, June 13 as part of the ongoing P.J. Adams Parkway widening project.

This is a change from the originally announced June 6 start date.

Road crews work on the first phase of the southwest Crestview bypass, which includes the widening of PJ Adams Parkway. Okaloosa County on Monday will hold a groundbreaking for the second phase of the project, which includes a north-south stretch of road between Interstate 10 and U.S. Highway 90.

During this traffic change, the intersection of Villacrest Drive East at P.J. Adams will be closed for approximately 10 weeks. The west intersection of Villacrest Drive will not be affected. No utility interruptions are scheduled during this traffic pattern.

County officials ask residents to seek an alternative route when traveling onto or from P.J. Adams Parkway at Villacrest Drive East during the next 10 weeks.
