CALLAWAY, Fla. (WJHG/WECP) - Callaway officials have been looking to widen Highway 22 for a while, but now they want to split it into two phases.

Officials say phase one will be from Star Avenue to Tyndall Parkway and phase two from Tyndall Parkway to Highway 98.

The commission says due to health and safety issues from poor drainage and flooding they're asking the Florida Department of Transportation to make phase one a priority.

City leaders will vote on the resolution at Tuesday’s City Commission meeting before sending it to the Transportation Planning Organization and then FDOT.
