Flagler County is located on the northeast coast of Florida approximately midway between the Florida/Georgia state line and Cape Canaveral. The county is bounded to the north by St. Johns County and to the south by Volusia County.

The Authorized Plan is the National Economic Development (NED) plan, consisting of a 10-foot dune and beach profile extension in central Flagler Beach. The renourishment covers 2.6 miles of shoreline and mainly prevents damage to SR-A1A.

Initial construction will require approximately 700,000 cubic yards (cy) of sand and each periodic nourishment event will require approximately 320,000 cy. The renourishment interval is expected to be approximately 11 years, equaling 4 renourishment events in addition to initial construction over the 50-year period of Federal participation.
