Escambia County is currently constructing roadway improvements at the intersection of Highway 297A and Kingsfield Road in Cantonment. New overhead traffic signals will be installed and placed into flash mode on Thursday, Sept. 13, and will remain in flash mode until Monday, Sept. 17, when the signals will be switched to full red, yellow, and green operations.
The intersection improvement project also includes the installation of turn lane improvements, pedestrian amenities and drainage upgrades, and is anticipated to be completed within the next few weeks. All activities are weather dependent and may be delayed or re-scheduled in the event of inclement weather.
The project will greatly improve both general and school traffic flow along the two roadways. Drivers are advised to be aware of the new traffic improvements at the intersection and take caution when driving around construction areas. If lane or roadway closures are necessary at any time during construction, another notice will be issued.
Please contact Escambia County Deputy Division Manager James Duncan at 850-777-4735 or Josh Haggard with Roads Inc. at 850-377-2649 with any questions, comments or for further assistance regarding this notice.
