Panama City road rejuvenation project

Panama City, Fla (WJHG/WECP) - Drivers may experience temporary traffic in Panama City as the Public Works Department begins a pavement rejuvenation project.

The eight-day project will happen all over the city. It only takes about 20 to 30 minutes for a road to be completed.

During this time, drivers will be directed down single-lane roads. According to the public works manager, this project will preserve the roads for five years, saving taxpayers money.

"This is a way to make those dollars stretch farther, it's not a permanent fix on the road but it extends the time before we need to go in and do a major road project," Panama City Public Works Director Neil Fravel said.

The project will cost taxpayers about $160,000 dollars.
