Construction on Five Points Intersection Improvements Begin Next Week

Construction on the Five Points intersection improvement project will begin the week of July 23. The improvements include realigning  Berryhill Road from Ashmore Lane to Chumuckla Highway. The realignment will move the current intersection approximately 500 feet to the north and create a two lane rural roadway section north of Berryhill Road connecting to Chumuckla Highway. Other project features include creation of a new retention pond and widening of the right turn and merge lanes on both Quinette Road and Chumuckla Highway. Once complete, the project will greatly improve safety and traffic flow to the area.


 The following areas will be construction zones and motorist, bicyclist, and pedestrians should anticipate changing traffic patterns and minor delays:

  •  Berryhill Road from Ashmore Lane to Chumuckla Highway
  • Quintette Road from Pigeon Forge Drive to Chumuckla Highway
  • Chumuckla Highway from Ashmore Lane to Quintette Road
  • Woodbine Road from Vinewood Lane to Chumuckla Highway
  • Vinewood Road from Southgate Drive to Woodbine Road

 No lane closures are anticipated and residents and businesses will have full access to their property. Construction is anticipated to be ongoing for approximately nine months.

 The Santa Rosa County Board of Commissioners approved the project in January 2011.  The project is estimated to cost $1.9 million and will be funded 50 percent, not to exceed $1 million, by the Florida Department of Transportation for construction, engineering and inspection. The county will match 50 percent of project costs.
