City staff and members of the Destin City Council gathered along Hutchinson Street Monday afternoon for the official groundbreaking on the Hutchinson Street improvement project.

The project largely includes pedestrian improvements (bike paths and 10-foot sidewalks) to the roadway and rights-of-way from U.S. Hwy. 98 to Scenic Hwy. 98. The scope of work also includes resurfacing and restriping the road in some areas.

Work will be partially funded by a Florida Department of Transportation grant through the Metropolitan Planning Organization and the Transportation Planning Organization. The construction contractor selected for the project is H&T Contractors, LLC, and the construction, engineering and inspection (CEI) consultant is DRMP.

Work is expected to begin immediately and be completed within six months. All told, it will cost $750,000 and FDOT will pay $382,200 of that cost.
