Some upcoming projects for Highway 319 are in the final planning phases, but those living in the area say they're ready to see a ground breaking. The plans were put up for display in Wakulla County Thursday evening where residents were able to see them at the First Baptist Church.

The Florida Department of Transportation says four-lane design plans for Crawfordville Highway from East Ivan Road to the Leon County line are finished. Some of the land along Crawfordville will be eminent domain for the project, so residents want to make sure it is being handled properly.

Mike Carter, who is an attorney for some land owners said, "It's the responsibility of the attorneys to see these people are all marshalled to the issue so that the property owner gets a just value of the taking."

FDOT says the next project along Crawfordville Highway will be the resurfacing of areas between Wakulla-Arran Road and the Leon County Line in 2011. Another multi-lane project for Crawfordville Highway is North of Lost Creek Bridge to East Ivan Road. The FDOT says this project does not have funding, but plans are 60% completed.

    I don't quite know how to respond to this story yet. Commissioner Kessler hasn't told me how I should feel about this project. Patiently waiting for my leader to speak. Don't keep me waiting.....

    ok this will give the sheriff more room to drive--maybe he will not run in to anyone and leave the accident..

    Darn. I personally do not want this to happen. I think I rather put up with a little traffic from 4-6:30 every afternoon than deal with all the commotion of a four lane highway and people losing parts of their property. It is what it is though

    I was hoping this would not happen. I live in "small town America" for many reasons, and hate to see our road become a true highway. Congestion here we come!
