East MalaCompra Road and Malacompra Park closed for dunes restoration: The easternmost section of MalaCompra Road will be temporarily closed as Flagler County’s dune restoration project moves south. Sand deliveries will begin Monday morning (Feb. 26). Flagler County has just completed its fifth week of work on the project, and completed the work at Washington Oaks Garden State Park. Revegetation of the recently shaped dunes is expected to occur over the next few months. “This next phase of dunes restoration construction will start at Bay Drive Park near Sea Colony and move southward to the MalaCompra access point,” said County Engineer Faith Alkhatib, who is overseeing the projects, which will cost upwards of $25 million. High tides, daylight, and weather affect the length of the workday.
In Flagler Beach, More Beach Walk-Overs Open: Last week the city re-opened six additional Beach Access Stairways /Dune Crossover locations, South of State Road 100. The following walkovers are currently open and the newly re-opened locations are identified in bold red:
