Bay County held a ribbon cutting recently to commemorate the completion of the Scotts Ferry road paving project. The $1.1 million project was funded by the Florida Department of Transportation at $950,000 and Bay County matching funds comprised the remainder. The project paved two miles of roadway that connects Bay to Calhoun County. The paving will save Bay County taxpayers roughly $20,000 annually in maintenance costs.
