1 US 98 / CR 30A beautification and Safety improvements
East Corridor Project US 98 / CR 30A beautification and Safety improvements

2 Goal and Scope The goal of our committee is to create a safe and beautiful infrastructure made up of intertwined residential and commercial elements with lighted pedestrian walkways, bicycle paths and an awe-inspiring landscape. This will be the “Gateway” to South Walton County and a model for our community and many other communities in Northwest Florida. The following items are the top priorities of our committee: Safety Beautification Maximization of the multi-modal aspect of the roadways Geographic Scope of the project US 98 from Watersound Parkway to the Walton-Bay County Line CR 30A from Rosemary Beach East to US 98

3 Project Elements Reduction of Speed Limit on US 98
Median and ROW Landscaping and Lighting Inter-connected and Safe Pedestrian-friendly Sidewalks Inter-connected and Safe Bike Paths Safe Pedestrian and Cyclist-friendly Access Crossing US 98 Undergrounding of Utilities Aesthetic Improvement of Existing Developments

Saw Cordgrass Sand Live Oak Saw Palmetto Muhly Grass Bermuda Turf Grass (all sections)

9 Multi-use Path Design Example - Buffer from Roadway
Example – Multiple Uses Example - Instructional Signage * Our current proposed design calls for a 10-foot wide path with a wider section for pedestrians than for cyclists on both sides of the roadway. Paths shown here are examples and may or may not depict those characteristics.
