    Just checking out the FHP site and it says 30A at 283 closed due to water.:blink:
    How bad is it? (or is it just Pandoras parking lot spilling over?)
    just checked back and they updated it to say..."ROAD CLOSED FROM CR-30A/CR-283 TO CR-30A/CR-83 DUE TO FLOODING FROM THE LAKES"

    I was thinking the same thing. Must be Alligator Lake or one of the Redfish Lakes.

    It is closed at big redfish lake. They waited until it stopped raining to close it and I guess they wanted to go to bed so they have left it closed although there is very little water coving the road now. 10 pm

    Thanks for the update Roscoe! I am sure that they will need to inspect the road, shoulders, and culvert before re-opening.

    Winds are relatively calm, surf is high, flags are red.

    I imagine a lot of these have cleared up since yesterday evening, we have had very little rain over the last 12 hours so that is the good news.

    Bridge over big redfish is still closed. The upper lake is not draining into the lower lake. Perhaps the invasive grass that has been growing all across the lake on south side of the bridge has stopped it up.

    Perhaps, but probably easily preventable with just a little culvert maintenance. Our road department is not very pro-active. There's a severe drainage problem at Seagrove Tom Thumb that they seem to be able to ignore also.

    I wonder if they really need a bridge over that. You've got one for the pike path. I wonder if that thing is on solid ground.

    I wonder if this washout is a plot by the golfcarters to remove all cars from 30-A?

    Ha! I'm not sure if I was clear though. What I was saying is I wonder if they need an all out bridge rather than this mound of dirt with pipes underneath it. I'm sure the golf cart people are happy with the present situation.
