    Big Redfish Drainage Improvement Project- This project will replace the existing culverts on Co Hwy 30A at Big Redfish Lake with a new bridge. The new bridge will upgrade the drainage capacity on Co Hwy 30A at Big Redfish Lake which has seen substantial damage during past storm events.

    By removing the existing culverts, this project will also provide an environmental benefit by allowing the lake to function in a more natural state. All engineering, design, and permitting is complete and utility relocations are scheduled to take place in early 2017. Construction of this project is currently scheduled for after Labor Day 2017. This project is being provided by a HMGP grant from FEMA with additional funding provided by the Walton County Board of County Commissioners.

    There is an alternate price to be considered by the board to complete the project in 60 days as opposed to the 90 day base bid.

    Road will be closed starting October 23rd at the bridge site. Multi-use path will be closed starting Oct 16th for utility relocates.

    Something needs to be done about the detour intersections on 98 - traffic is backed up on grayton rd going north. Need to change the light frequency or get a traffic cop.

    Agree. I would move for Citizen Service Officer Leah to spearhead the whole thing. She is more than capable and should be paid as a full time staff member. She's out directing traffic at almost every wreck.

    These photos are from 10 days ago on 1/3/18. I guess 430 pm is too late in the day to be working.
