WALTON COUNTY REPAIRS CR 30A AT BIG REDFISH LAKE; ANTICIPATE OPENING SOON
DeFuniak Springs, FL… Beginning last week, the Walton County District 5 Road Crew began work to back-fill and repair the area of CR 30A at Big Redfish Lake where the road collapsed during an August rain event.
At this time, the Road Crews are working to repair a culvert in that location in order to move towards reopening the road. Barring any setbacks, crews are working diligently to have the road open as soon as Friday, September 13
As progress continues to be made, Walton County will continue to provide updates on the actual reopening of CR 30A at Big Redfish Lake.
In addition, the County is moving forward to obtain the necessary permits and work on design for a permanent bridge that would be constructed there in the future. As you may be aware the permitting process can be lengthy so in the issuance of being able to open the road to the public, this seems like the best option. Once permits have been established and the design process has been completed, it will be decided when to re-close that section of road for construction.
While crews work to reopen that section as soon as possible, it will not be reopened until it is deemed safe.
At your service,
