Private Streets, Lane Closures & Medians

The City of Destin is not allowed to maintain private streets within the incorporated City of Destin. Private streets are the responsibility of the local homeowners association. View a map of Destin streets. Private streets are indicated by (p). Lane closures will be posted on Destin News Flash.

Median Maintenance


The city’s road crew and contractors maintain the growth of the vegetation in the rights of way. It is against City Code to put signage in the public rights of way. Report signs that may cause visibility problems for traffic and do not adhere to the city’s beautification code.
