Navarre awarded $110,000 for 98 beautification

Navarre Parkway will soon receive a much-anticipated makeover complete with a $110,000 price tag.

The Florida Department of Transportation has awarded a $110,000 grant for landscape construction on the section of Highway 98 from Highway 87 to the Winn Dixie.

Navarre resident and business owner Laurie Gallup submitted the grant proposal a year ago while working alongside the United Peninsula Association which has led beautification efforts in Gulf Breeze. Gallup was informed Oct. 7 that her proposal was approved.

“I was excited when I opened up my email and saw that we were approved for $110,000 for the FDOT beautification grant,” Gallup said. “The big thing to remember is there are different pots of money. This money comes from part of a gas tax we already pay. Navarre can take their fair share or we can let Miami have it,” Gallup said.
