FDOT A1A Construction Update 5/30/19
IMPORTANT: Safety in the Work Zone
As summer brings more people to the beach, please be extra cautious and stay alert for moving construction equipment, pedestrians, and other vehicles as you travel through the work zone! Please also note there is increased law enforcement in place to monitor traffic along S.R. A1A and S. Central Avenue. Remember, safety is everyone’s responsibility.
Segment 1 (South 25th Street to South 22nd Street) Project Update:
Clearing and placing sand is complete on this segment. The contractor expects to begin planting new vegetation next week. This activity may require single lane closures with flagging operations.
Segment 2 (South 22nd Street to South 9th Street) Project Update:
The contractor is completing the necessary testing and certifications on the new water line between South 20th Street and South 17th Street. Once that process is complete, the contractor will be switching service onto the new line. This is expected to begin the week of June 10. As customers are transferred to the new line, a short interruption of service is necessary, typically less than 30 minutes. The contractor is working to switch businesses over during non-working hours. The contractor will attempt to notify residents and businesses prior to any interruption of service.
Water main installation is also occurring between South 14th and South 16th streets. Work on the French drain system is taking place between South 12th and South 13th streets.
The contractor also will be constructing new sidewalk between South 13th and South 14 streets, and South 16th and South 18th streets over the next few weeks.
Segment 3 (North 18th Street to Osprey Drive) Project Update:
Drilling of the concrete piles for the new secant wall continues north of Ocean Marina Drive. This is followed by construction of the concrete wall cap. Once the cap is finished, the dune sand is reworked to achieve the designated slope so that vegetation can be planted. The first plants are expected to be put in next week.
