Expanding Sewer & Water Services South of I-10
City of Bonifay, Holmes & Washington Counties
Comprised of 1,525 acres south of the interchange of I-10 and Highway 79, the Corridor Authority runs south along both the east and west sides of Hwy 79 for 2.1 miles from the City of Bonifay, through Holmes County and into Washington County at the intersection of WC Hwy 280 (Douglas Ferry Road) and Highway 79.
This project may be the first in the Panhandle, with 3 governments solving a mutual problem of lack of sewer and water services south of I-10 along a major state highway between the Gulf of Mexico and the Alabama border. The initial projection is for 7 new businesses typical of Interstate interchanges (motel, fast food, quality restaurant, large convenience store, strip-center, etc.). It generates 219 new well-paying jobs for RAO counties.
