Today’s Briefing: Quick Links

“Doctor Parcival began to plead with George Willard. “You must pay attention to me,” he urged. “If something happens perhaps you will be able to write the book that I may never get written. The idea is very simple, so simple that if you are not careful you will forget it. It is this—that everyone in the world is Christ and they are all crucified. That’s what I want to say. Don’t you forget that. Whatever happens, don’t you dare let yourself forget.”

 

–Sherwood Anderson, from “The Philosopher,” in “Winesburg, Ohio” (1919).

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: July 1

Protecting Turtles

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.
