State Road A1A Reconstruction Project Update

FDOT

Construction is underway on both Segment 2 (South 22nd Street to South 9th Street) and Segment 3 (North 18th Street to Osprey Drive). Please see updates below.


IMPORTANT: Safety in the Work Zone

It is very important that pedestrians and drivers use caution and stay out of the work zones for safety. Drivers should obey the posted speed limit and stay alert for workers and equipment in the area.


Segment 2 (South 22nd Street to South 9th Street) Project Update

 

Lane and Road Closures:

  • Residents are advised that several side streets will be closed at S.R. A1A to accommodate removal of barrier wall on Thursday, Feb. 14, from 6:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m.
  • The contractor will close all side streets from South 19th Street to South 13th Street at S.R. A1A. Traffic will not be able to turn onto or off of S.R. A1A at those side streets.
  • Local traffic will be able to access driveways on the side streets between Central Avenue and S.R. A1A.
  • Single lane closures with flagging operations will continue on this segment. Motorists are asked to use caution and be prepared to stop.

Dune Walkovers:

The project team has announced that reconstruction of the walkovers is tentatively scheduled to begin in fall 2019. This timeframe is based on the current work schedule. Please note the schedule may be affected by weather or unforeseen circumstances. All walkovers impacted by construction will be restored to their pre-construction condition. The project team is taking care to store materials for each walkover separately, and is taking photographs to ensure walkovers are reconstructed to the way they were before work began.

 

Please note that the walkovers must remain closed during construction for safety reasons. The walkovers had to be removed to accommodate the temporary pavement for the northbound travel lane that will be used during construction. Walkovers remain open to the north and south of the project.


Segment 3 (North 18th Street to Osprey Drive) Project Update

 

New Traffic Pattern Coming Friday, Feb. 15, 2019:

  • The contractor will be shifting the travel lanes along S.R. A1A slightly to the west to accommodate work on the buried seawall.
  • The new pattern will maintain one lane in each direction along S.R. A1A between North 18th Street and Osprey Drive.
  • Single lane closures with flagging operations will be in place on Thursday.

Dune Walkovers:

The contractor will continue to remove dune walkovers as needed to accommodate construction of the buried seawall. The affected dune walkovers include both public and private walkovers between North 18th Street and Osprey Drive. By contract, all affected dune walkovers will be reconstructed once work is complete to their pre-construction condition. The contractor is carefully removing and storing separately the existing materials for each walkover. Photographs also are being taken to document existing conditions and will be used to assist with reconstruction.

 

Please note that the walkovers must remain closed during construction for safety reasons.


The project team has announced that reconstruction of the walkovers is tentatively scheduled to begin in fall 2019. This timeframe is based on the current work schedule. Please note the schedule may be affected by weather or unforeseen circumstances.


Please let me know if you have any questions.
