March 16, 2023 – Flagler County officials are advising residents that the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) is to hold a public meeting at 5:30 p.m. March 21 (Tuesday) about project plans to develop recommendations for strengthening the State Road A1A corridor between Ormond-by-the-Sea and Osprey Drive in Beverly Beach.
