    On Big Redfish Lake between Hwy 283 (Grayton) and Hwy 83 (Blue Mountain Beach), the steel bike path bridge will be installed during this period and all vehicle, pedestrian, and bicycle traffic will be re-routed to US 98.

    Sure sucks for us businesses over in BMB! :bang: I was told they had a contract for 15 days, and they had to get in it by then. Such is politics in South Walton County!

    Thanks for the update!

    Perhaps we can ask those "workers" I saw during the 2 weeks sitting in folding chairs to reach across the divide and make deliveries?

    This was delayed and is now scheduled for next week. Hopefully it will be finished before ArtsQuest starts.

    For all those attending ArtsQuest that weekend, you should know that shuttle parking is located on CR 395 at WaterColor Crossings. So just take Hwy. 98, turn south on 395, and shuttle parking will be on your left.

    Road was opened by 5 pm on Friday. Delay was caused by delivery of the bridge pieces - 2 of them, each 150' in length, and they had to be assembled on the site. Crane to lift them and the two flatbed trailers that carried the bridge pieces filled the road, so it had to be closed. Floridian Construction did a great job of getting it together and in place once the bridge pieces arrived.
