Panama City Beach Community Redevelopment Agency
The Panama City Beach Community Redevelopment Agency was formed to improve pedestrian, parking and transportation networks and facilities, and to improve the overall aesthetics of Panama City Beach. The CRA is making significant improvements to the transportation network that serves the Panama City Beach tourism corridor by planning and building an integrated system of transportation options to provide efficient, attractive and fun ways to move around town.
The CRA plan will provide the infrastructure for an efficient, pedestrian-friendly road and transit system along the Front Beach Road corridor by reconstructing and streetscaping eight miles of Front Beach Road with underground utilities, landscaping, decorative sidewalk and innovative roadway lanes dedicated to transit and bicycle use. The dedicated lane transit facility will provide efficient access to Panama City Beach’s many public beach access points with parking available at two planned multi-modal centers anchoring the east and west entry points to the corridor, in addition to several smaller beach parking lots constructed along Front Beach Road. The CRA plan will complete the transportation network by reconstructing seven north-south connector roads to provide streetscaping, underground utilities, sidewalks, bicycle lanes and additional traffic lanes.
