When I rode up the bike trail (westbound) on Monday, it was closed. Things looked exactly the same as in Kurt's photo. It appeared that they were preparing to install some type of piping under the eastbound shoulder.

Yes they are working on utilities. I saw a notice that the bike path would be closed for a day for some welding to be done. I think it should be re-open by now but not sure.

Utilities have to be moved first, some run through the causeway. Then the current bridge and fill have to be removed. The bridge will start after that.

Draper Lake Bridge Construction Project Update #1

The Draper Lake Bridge Construction Project has been under way for the last two weeks. Currently, the utility contractors are scheduled to be complete with the associated utility relocations by the end of this week.

A pre-construction meeting will be held on Tuesday, October 6th at which time the notice to proceed will be issued to Murphree Bridge Corporation. The construction contract is a 120 day contract and the project currently remains on schedule which will allow County Highway 30A to reopen no later than March 1, 2016.

If you have any questions related to this project please do not hesitate to contact Walton County Public Works at 892-8108.

There was just another serious traffic crash at the 98 & 83 Detour Intersection. They had to extract the driver from one of the vehicles.

Perhaps we need a temporary light there. Its only been about two weeks and there have been multiple crashes.

Where's FHP when you need them?
