On Monday, June 21, the Florida Department of Transportation will begin a maintenance project to reinforce and stabilize the current rock revetment in Flagler Beach between South 16th Street and South 12th Street.
The contractor will be adding large boulders to the existing rock revetment footprint. The materials used for the dune stabilization will be native and locally sourced. As part of this project, any dune plantings disturbed will be replanted.
This project is permitted through the Florida Department of Environmental Protection. The work will support dune maintenance previously done in this area and address the areas of revetment that are the least protected. All work will be coordinated with the Flagler Beach Turtle Patrol, with work only occurring after the construction area has been cleared. No work will be performed from the beach.
Crews will work 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. Monday through Friday and start on the south end of the project at South 16th Street. Motorists on northbound State Road A1A will be detoured around the work areas using South Central Avenue. All detours will be in place 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. Monday through Friday and removed each evening. Southbound S.R. A1A and all side streets will remain open.
As work is completed, the contractor will move to the next phase of the project. Phase 1 will begin Monday, June 21; the subsequent phases will be scheduled at a later date that has yet to be determined.
Northbound S.R. A1A detours are as follows:
Phase 1 Detour: Northbound S.R. A1A will be detoured at South 17th Street. Motorists on northbound S.R. A1A will turn left on South 17th Street, right on South Central Avenue, and right on South 15th Street to northbound S.R. A1A.
Phase 2 Detour: Northbound S.R. A1A will be detoured to South 16th Street. Motorists on northbound S.R. A1A will turn left on South 16th Street, right on South Central Avenue, and right on South 13th Street to northbound S.R. A1A.
Phase 3 Detour: Northbound S.R. A1A will be detoured to South 13th Street. Motorists on northbound S.R. A1A will turn left on South 13th Street, right on South Central Avenue, and right on South 12th Street to northbound S.R. A1A.
The construction schedule could change due to weather or other unexpected conditions.
Ever since the renovation of south A1A I have driven on A1A only once because it’s a mess. IMO a 25 mph speed limit on a road where tourists like to look at the ocean (as if they never saw water before) and not pay attention is stupid. The other stupid thing they did was put in the center median. The lanes are narrow and when pulling a trailer it’s tight. I guess it’s just another one of those things where the question is, What were they thinking? I tell tell you they weren’t. But I have an answer and that answer is you can’t fix stupid. I’m glad I found a better way to get to Ormond by the Sea without having to deal with the A1A mess. For all I care they can keep throwing good money after bad, but I’ll bet the first big hurricane to come through there it will all have to be redone again.
I agree. The road work is a slow, ugly eyesore. It looks like the contractors packed up and left town before completion. And you can keep throwing rocks and sand, and it will wash away again. Astronomical amounts of money lost is just a couple of days.
That Road situation and Comment brought to mind those Rotaries on US 1. They weren’t thinking then either. Dangerous
Sometime I thing some engineers couldn’t find their way out of a paper bag if the exit was marked.
yes center median is stupid-should have been a center turn lane. storm water drains should have been on the west side of the road.
Well since they are “fixing the dunes and silly rocks in the Flagler Beach area, how about shore up the DUNES further NORTH. I guess our county just doesn’t think its needed or they flat just don’t care.
