Flagler Beach, FL – The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) will hold a public hearing next week regarding an estimated $4.99 million in repairs to the area of A1A from South 22nd St. to South 9th St. that was damaged during Hurricane Matthew.
The hearing will take place Thursday, November 2 at the Flagler Beach Methodist Church located at 1520 South Daytona Ave. It will begin as an open house at 5:30 PM, and a formal presentation will begin at 6 PM, followed by a comment period. A court reporter will prepare a transcript of the hearing.
The new road construction is expected to have two lanes (one in each direction) and a median in parts of the area. The median is intended to retain stormwater run-off, according to FDOT. The roadway is planned to have a posted speed limit of 30 miles-per-hour, and FDOT says that the project proposal includes installing sand and native plantings on the east side of SR A1A between the road and the right of way line.
Anyone wishing to submit written statements or other exhibits for the public hearing record may do so at the hearing or by sending them to Ty Garner, FDOT Project Manager, Ty.Garner@dot.state.fl.us, 386-943-5299, 719 South Woodland Blvd., DeLand, Florida 32720.
