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: July 1
Now that turtle nesting season has started in the Flagler Beach area, local Turtle Patrol volunteers are checking the beach within the project limits every day to locate any new nests. In Segment 3, north of North 18th Street, work cannot begin until the beach is checked. If a nest is discovered, the nest will be marked, and work will not be allowed within 10 feet of the nest, as specified in the environmental permits issued for this project.
The Turtle Patrol also is monitoring the beach in the project limits of Segment 1, from South 25th Street to South 22nd Street, where plans call for dune revetment involving additional sand and plants.
July 4 Holiday Work Break:
The contractor will not be working on any of the three segments from July 4 through July 7. Work will resume on Monday, July 8, and will occur six days a week.
Segment 1 South 25th Street to South 22nd Street):
The contractor has placed most of the plants in this section. No planting is scheduled to occur over the next two weeks.
Segment 2 (South 22nd Street to South 9th Street):
Work next week will take place Monday – Wednesday and will include removal of the old water main between South 13th Street and South 20th Street. French drain construction is expected over the next few weeks near South 10th Street, and between South 15th and South 16 streets.
Sidewalk installation is expected between South 14th and South 16th streets, with grading for new sidewalk occurring between South 16th and South 17th streets.
The contractor is also preparing to place lime rock base on the southern end of the project.
Segment 3 (North 18th Street to Osprey Drive) Project Update:
The contractor continues to drill piles for the secant wall, and form and pour the concrete cap over the wall. Drilling is expected to be finished within the next two weeks, with cap construction finishing a few weeks later. Crews also continue to place sand over the new wall and form the dunes.

The Florida Department of Transportation will be closing Old Dixie Highway and C.R. 325 at U.S. 1 on Monday night, March 4, from about 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. The closure is needed to allow the contractor to make improvements to the crossover at the temporary intersection.

See this week’s full Interstate Construction Report for Flagler, Volusia and St. Johns here.
I-95 Project in Daytona Beach One Step Closer to Final Interchange Layout: Motorists traveling on southbound Interstate 95 (I-95) exiting to U.S. 92 (International Speedway Boulevard), westbound Interstate 4 (I-4), and eastbound State Road (S.R.) 400 (Beville Road) will do so at a new location, sooner than they usually would exit I-95, starting the morning of Friday, June 28. A new ramp system called a collector-distributor road, which is separated from and parallel to southbound I-95, will open, servicing three exit ramps: 260 A, B, and C. The collector-distributor road will service drivers that want to exit from southbound I-95 to U.S. 92 (International Speedway Boulevard), westbound I-4, and eastbound S.R. 400 (Beville Road). The exit numbers 260A/B/C for U.S. 92, I-4, and S.R. 400 will not change. Electronic message boards and other signs will be placed to alert drivers to the new traffic pattern. Drivers who miss the exit will need to travel to S.R. 421 (Taylor Road) and return on northbound I-95. To make the traffic switch to the new collector-distributor road detours will need to take place overnight from 10 p.m. Thursday, June 27, to 6 a.m. Friday, June 28, requiring southbound I-95 to be closed between LPGA Boulevard and I-4. This includes the southbound I-95 on ramps from both directions of U.S. 92 (International Speedway Boulevard). During the closure, the posted detours will be:
- Traffic from southbound I-95
- Motorists will take Exit 265 for LPGA Boulevard and go east where they turn right onto southbound Williamson Boulevard to S.R. 400 (Beville Road) to access southbound I-95 and westbound I-4.
- Traffic from eastbound and westbound U.S. 92 (International Speedway Boulevard)
- Motorists will be directed to take southbound Williamson Boulevard to S.R. 400 (Beville Road) to access southbound I-95.
