County Road 386

Commissioners approved spending $38,000 from the Secondary Road and Bridge Fund to pay for middle-striping and the placing of nighttime reflectors on County Road 386 due to dangerous conditions on the dark and unlined road.

Commissioners also approved sending a letter to the Florida Department of Transportation that the agency take back ownership, and maintenance, of the road and the Overstreet Bridge on the road. At one time the bridge was a state responsibility, McDaniel noted, and in the small county where resources are tight the state should resume responsibility for the bridge and also the entire length of County Road 386.

RESTORE Committee

The RESTORE Committee co-chair Loretta Costin reported that the committee had come up with a broad strokes plan for moving ahead on projects to spend the potential BP fine money coming the county’s way.
