Flagler County Shore Protection Project
Construction (C)
Congressional District: 6


Flagler County is located along the northeast coast of Florida 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 (beach nourishment) along 2.6 miles of shoreline in central Flagler Beach. The project, once constructed, will reduce the risk of storm damages to state road A1A, which is the area’s main hurricane evacuation route and a designated historic byway.

Once initial construction is complete, the renourishment interval is expected to be approximately 11 years, equaling 4 renourishment events over the 50-year period of federal participation.
