State Road A1A Drainage Improvements at Driftwood Avenue in Daytona Beach

The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) is repairing and lining the existing State Road (S.R.) A1A (North Atlantic Avenue) underground storm drain pipe at Driftwood Avenue in Daytona Beach, Volusia County. This drainage outfall system carries excess rain and groundwater from S.R.

Lane Closures
  • The contractor is currently lining and curing a storm drainpipe that carries excess rain and groundwater from S.R. A1A (N Atlantic Avenue) at Driftwood Avenue to a Halifax River outfall at the west end of Wilmans Boulevard. This operation requires a temporary continuous roadway closure along a segment of Flagstone Drive at Chipeway Avenue. This segment is expected to be fully closed to through traffic until approximately September 29 to allow the contractor necessary access to drainage manholes in the middle of the roadway. 

    The work schedule may change due to weather or other unforeseen circumstances. 

    Access to properties located within the roadway closure will be maintained. The contractor will guide residents through the closure and to their homes as needed.

    Throughout this work, motorists will be guided by signage that will detour them down the surrounding local roadways.

    During the pipe lining process, residents may notice an unavoidable “plastic-like” odor from the resin used to cure the storm drain liner. The odor is not harmful, and steps will be taken to minimize the impacts to nearby residents and businesses while work is underway.
