The mission of the Walton County Sheriff’s Office during the 32nd Annual Sandestin Triathlon is to provide safety to staff and participants to ensure a successful completion for everyone involved.

Following concerns from the public, WCSO has decided not to close 30a until the first bike enters U.S. Highway 98 from Sandestin. This should keep the road open for approximately 30 minutes longer. In addition, WCSO will open the road as soon as the majority of riders are off 30a. Further, WE WILL BE ASSISTING residents in the affected areas to leave and go to the nearest roadblock, as long as it is safe to do so and does not endanger any cyclists. However, no one will be permitted to re-enter the blocked area until we open it back up.

Walton County Sheriff’s Office would like to remind residents/visitors that on September 8th County Highway 30A will be intermittently closed from approximately 0600-930 from U.S. Highway 98 near East Hewett to South County Highway 83. In addition, one eastbound lane of U.S. Highway 98 from Sandestin Blvd South to West County Highway 30A will be shut down.

Please plan your day accordingly and be alert while driving. Many athletes and first responders will be along the course during these hours.
