Very clear to a number of qualified people that the hole in the road could be fixed within two to three days. Does it make sense to leave the road closed for a minimum of eight months waiting for permits when the road could be reopened by next weekend? The hole in the road in not very close to the lake, could be baled and filled quickly. Why do 30 to 40 people (or more) need to lose their jobs in Grayton and Blue Mountain while Walton County waits on permits?
Also, still makes no sense that Road Closed signs are not at intersections, visitors are furious when they go through intersection and find they can't get through.
And Detour sign on 98W is gibberish, should say "Hwy 30A Blue Mountain Beach Next Left"
If 30A would have a big hole between Seagrove and WaterSound, it would have been repaired within days and the permanent fix would come later. But west end of 30A, is, red headed step child. Who is gonna stand up for us? Small businesses are gonna under. Walton county needs to fix this now! Do not divide 30A!
