In an effort to increase safety along Walton County’s Scenic 30A, the County’s Public Works Department has made a few changes with additional work to be done. 


The project and processes that are currently being instituted were initially generated by citizen concerns that the area needed some additional safety measures put in place.  The Department of Public Works began the planning process in early November and is currently working to ensure the safety of this stretch of road.


"Safety is our number one priority. This is a temporary measure instituted by the previous board until we build the bridge over Western Lake,” said District 5 Commissioner Cindy Meadows.  “I will be proposing to the BCC that we use bed tax revenues to build the bridge and maintain the paths based on the Florida Attorney General recent opinion that bed tax revenues may be used if deemed tourist related by the governing body."
