BAY COUNTY, Fla. (WJHG/WECP) - Construction for the second phase of Bay Parkway, formerly known as Loop Road, may be getting some financial help.

The Bay, Gulf, Holmes, and Washington Regional Transportation Partnership held a meeting Monday to discuss the roadway.

They say they plan on applying for a grant through an incentive program with the Florida Department of Transportation to help pay for the construction.

The new road is set to extend from Pier Park Drive East to Nautilus Street and is expected to ease traffic on Back Beach Road.
