Expected traffic delays and lane closures due to sewer line work in Fort Walton Beach

Lane closure and traffic delays through Tuesday morning are expected on Racetrack Road due to sewer line work.

Crews from the Okaloosa County Water and Sewer Department are working to upgrade an aging clay gravity sewer line on Racetrack Road from Beal Parkway to Richpien Road, according to a statement from Okaloosa County.

The road work began on Sunday, August 8th and is expected to last through Thursday morning at 8am.

The eastbound lanes of traffic will be restricted to one lane and a water flow-through
ramp will be installed across Racetrack Road at the Richpien Road intersection.

  • The ramp will appear to be a speed bump and will be in place until the sewer line work is complete.
  • Traffic congestion is likely and motorists should be prepared to slow down.
  • An Okaloosa County Sheriff deputy will be present to alert drivers.
