I know what you are thinking – what’s this rubbish. Why is jason posting pictures of plantlife, is he going all botanical and what-not? This my friend is a picture of the new shrubbery planted in the median of Beckrich Road. That’s right, they have plantlife in the median. Panama City Beach is moving on up in this world.
Started in September 2007, the Beckrich Road portion of the CRA is coming closer to completion each day. On schedule to be done by May, landscaping is being installed and final measures are taking place on the original, yet newly rehashed side of the road.
The final product will be four lanes of landscaped, medianed, sidewalked, street lamped roadway extending from Back Beach Road to Front Beach Road going through the intersection of Middle Beach Road or Hutchison Boulevard. All existing underground utilities were replaced and all electrical utilities were moved underground.
The east side of the stretch of Beckrich south of Middle Beach Road is dirt right now with preparations being made for paving.
This is what we can expect all of the main travel coridors of Panama City Beach to look like. All along Front Beach Road, the power and phone lines will be moved underground, the street will be widened and sidewalks and landscaping will be installed along the sides.
