South 22nd Street to South 9th Street permanent repairs

The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) is holding a public hearing regarding the portion of S.R. A1A from South 22nd Street to South 9th Street. The department is designing permanent repairs as a result of damage caused by Hurricane Matthew and other coastal storm events. The project is funded for construction in summer of 2018, after July 1. No additional right of way will be required. Other information:

  • Estimated cost is $4.99 million
  • The new road will have two lanes (one in each direction) and a median in portions of the section; the intent of the median is to retain storm water runoff
  • Recommended posted speed limit of 30 miles-per-hour
  • The project also proposes installing sand and native plantings on the east side SR A1A between the road and the right of way line.

The hearing is Thursday, November 2, 2017, at the Flagler Beach Methodist Church, 1520 South Daytona Avenue, Flagler Beach, Florida 32136. The purpose of this hearing is to introduce the project and present the design concept to the public. The hearing will begin as an open house at 5:30 p.m. A formal presentation will begin at 6 p.m., followed by a comment period. A court reporter will prepare a verbatim transcript of the proceedings. Persons wishing to submit written statements or other exhibits, in place of or in addition to oral statements, may do so at the hearing or by sending them to Mr. Ty Garner, FDOT Project Manager, Ty.Garner@dot.state.fl.us, 386-943-5299, 719 South Woodland Boulevard, DeLand, Florida 32720.
