Flagler Beach Is Open For Business: A1A Construction Update:

FlaglerLive is providing weekly updates to year-long construction on and near State Road A1A in Flagler Beach as the Florida Department of Transportation rebuilds a 1.5-mile segment from South 9th Street to South 22nd Street, and builds a sea wall at the north end of town. These updates are provided through DOT or local officials. If you have any relevant information or images, you’re welcome to email them to the editor here.

Last Updated: March 25

Segment 2 (South 22nd Street to South 9th Street):

The contractor continues installing a new water main along the west side of S.R. A1A. The work began at the south end of the project and is moving north. The contractor is expected to be installing new pipe between South 19th Street and South 18th Street over the next two weeks. Farther south, the contractor will be preparing to pour concrete for the new sidewalk.

Pedestrians are asked to stay within the temporary pedestrian walkways for safety. Residents and visitors also are reminded that all of the dune walkovers are closed, and removing any signage or barricades to access a walkover is unsafe and unlawful.

Segment 3 (North 18th Street to Osprey Drive) Project Update:

The contractor has completed more than 200 of the approximately 1,800 piles that need to be drilled to create the secant wall.

Construction activities will continue during daylight hours Monday through Saturday. The contractor is requesting that spectators stay off the shoulders and out of the work zone for safety. Drivers need to obey the 25-mph speed limit and remember that parking is not allowed on the shoulder.

Caution! Flagler Beach police and and Sherriff’s deputies are actively monitoring speed and writing tickets. “I got a warning on north section of A1A before construction actually began so I keep to the 25 limit, but still getting tailgated by cars wanting to go faster,” a reader tells us.

2 Flagler Emergency Planners graduate FEPA Intermediate Academy: Two Flagler County Emergency Management Planners – Lea Tardanico and Nealon Joseph – recently graduated from the Florida Emergency Preparedness Association (FEPA) Intermediate Academy. “The commitment of Nealon and Lea to expand their horizons for the betterment of Flagler County increases the pride that I already have for our amazing emergency management team,” said Emergency Management Chief Jonathan Lord, noting that volunteers and several community partners round out the team along with county and municipal staff. “I am also grateful for the efforts put forth by the Florida Emergency Preparedness Association to better prepare Florida’s emergency managers for the future.” Tardanico and Joseph – Flagler County’s newest emergency managers – spent a week in mid-March the Florida National Guard Camp Blanding Joint Training Center with other like-minded professionals from across the state to dive deeper into practical applications and principals of Emergency Management. The course included more than 60 hours of classroom instruction endured in 12- to 14-hour days to simulate real life emergency deployment and response. “I came away even more motivated to continue my path in emergency management,” Tardanico said. “There is still so much to learn, and it is wonderful to get information directly from the subject area experts.” Joseph added that nothing tops an opportunity to learn from others’ experiences. “It really illustrated that there can be a disconnect between what is happening in the field and the operations center,” Joseph said. “It is critical to follow the plans and the planning process to prevent creating a communications gap between the two.” The Intermediate Academy course training counts toward the completion of the FEMA Advanced Professional Series certification for Joseph and Tardanico.
