Stormy Weekend

Weekend Storms


The storms this weekend have produced some sizable waves. The beach is taking the brunt of the high winds and high waves. Hopefully, we don’t lose too much sand to the gulf in the next few days as the storm loses it strength.


Road closures planned on 30A Coming Up

30a on the Emerald Cost.

30a Upcoming Closure

The Walton County Public Works Department has issued a list detailing current road projects in the county.

County Highway 30A

Temporary road closures on County Highway 30A have been set due to the delivery and placement of the Western Lake pedestrian bridges. During the closures, both east and westbound lanes will be closed to vehicle, pedestrian and bicycle traffic. Once the crane and bridge are in place, contractors will install barriers that completely block the entire right-of-way on 30A.

Road Closure Schedule:

Closures will begin 80 feet west and 100 feet east of the project. Traffic detours around the closures will be via US Highway 98.

County Road 285

Expect periodic lane closures as guardrail installation continues. Paving, striping, and grass installation are complete, and new mailboxes have been installed.
