Road Closed just East of 83 to remove the road and culvert system and replace it with a bridge to allow the lake to re-establish itself as ONE Lake!  Those of us who regularly travel 30A are no strangers to constant construction and improvements.  This one is exciting as are the next 2 lakes scheduled for the same upgrade.

Big Redfish Drainage Improvement Project- This project will replace the existing culverts on Co Hwy 30A at Big Redfish Lake with a new bridge. The new bridge will upgrade the drainage capacity on Co Hwy 30A at Big Redfish Lake which has seen substantial damage during past storm events.


By removing the existing culverts, this project will also provide an environmental benefit by allowing the lake to function in a more natural state. All engineering, design, and permitting is complete and utility relocations are scheduled to take place in early 2017.   This project is being provided by a HMGP grant from FEMA with additional funding provided by the Walton County Board of County Commissioners.
