    Groundbreaking ceremony for HWY 87 project

    Today was a groundbreaking ceremony to celebrate the official beginning of a construction project on HWY 87.

    During hurricanes and rain storms, the highway submerges under water. This project is going to change that by heightening the road from 5 1/2 feet to 7 1/2 feet. They will also be restructuring the curve near HWY 124, bringing it more inland and away from the shoreline.

    The hope is this project will create a safer evacuation route for local residents.
