Roadway Activities

On June 24, 2013 the Walton County Board of Commissioners voted to not accept any Roadway Activity Applications until After Labor Day.


A “roadway activity” is any activity that may affect the safe and normal movement of vehicular and pedestrian traffic along the county roadway systems, or which may require the assistance of local, county or state law enforcement agencies. Roadway activities include, but are not limited to, marches, parades, organized bicycle or pedestrian races, fundraisers, festivals or other activities that may impact roadway operations.


Walton County has a responsibility to provide a safe and efficient roadway system for all users. Any activity affecting county roads must first obtain a Roadway Activity Permit from Walton County Administration. Please note Walton County will not permit activities on State or Federal roadways.

Roadway Activity Permit Applications are available at Walton County Administration or on the county website Applicants must demonstrate that the non-profit activity has a charitable benefit for the citizens of Walton County. Limit two roadway activities per group/applicant annually. Roadway activities such as solicitations and fundraisers shall not be held on holidays.
