There will be the replacing of drainage structures and the installation of flap gates. There will be the removing, narrowing, and /or upgrading medians and curb and gutter  and the adding of 4-foot bike lanes from Monroe Street to Arizona Street.

At least one lane of traffic in each direction of A1A will be maintained at all times. Traffic will be shifted to either side of the road as needed.  A sidewalk will be maintained on at least one side of the road within the project limits. Signage will be in place to guide pedestrians through the work zone. Lane closure information and construction work hours will be provided in the weekly traffic report distributed by FDOT.
