The Apalachee RPC was awarded a grant to implement a living shoreline project in Franklin County. This groundbreaking coastal resiliency project, dubbed “Franklin-98", includes the establishment of nearshore reefs which will reduce wave energy and allow the creation of salt marshes to protect twelve miles of shoreline and U.S. Highway 98 between the City of Carrabelle and Eastpoint.

Phase I of Franklin-98 involved several public workshops, testing of potential site materials, and gathering
necessary data. As phase II begins, awarded funds will allow for further data collection, development
of site plans, site material acquisitions, and construction.
