    And it also seems they are placing a street light for the intersection on the southern side of 30A where there was beach access before..

    I know this will go over like a concrete balloon, but it seems regrettably necessary to vacate that access. It’s simply nuts to have tourists trying to walk to that spot, with all the chit going on.

    I'm sure in the 15 pages of comments in this thread that someone has mentioned it, but I'm not ready through years/pages of comments......Why can they not make a pedestrian "bridge" over the road or under the road as they are doing at 30A and 98 on the east end? As narrow as the road is right there a pedestrian bridge over the road would seem to be a smaller, less costly option. Get the peds & bikes OFF the road at the intersection. But what do I know?

    That has been my notion too. A pedestrian bridge could be designed to be quite graceful and beautiful. Like a gateway to 30-A.

    It would have to be 1/4 mile long to keep the slope low enough for tourists on bikes.

    My concept would have the roadways lowered a few feet to mitigate the incline.

    The roadways would simply dip a little as they approached the intersection. The pedestrian bridge would only need to be half as high.

    Maybe have an upside-down dip and make the road go up over the bike path.

    Not a bad idea. Bicyclers much shorter than 18 wheelers. I don't much like tunnels, but if it was more similar to an overpass, it could have plenty of natural light.
