FDOT District Four completed the emergency restoration of A1A between NE 14 Court and NE 18 Street in Fort Lauderdale. This area was severely eroded during Hurricane Sandy in October 2012 and the Thanksgiving weekend storms in November. The extreme high tides of those storms caused severe beach erosion and the collapse of the existing sea wall, sidewalk, and some of the paved parking area along the east side of A1A. FDOT received an emergency declaration and was awarded an $8.3 million restoration project that included installation of a sheet pile wall along the eastern edge of the damaged area to stabilize the road. Broward County restored the beach with over 34,000 tons of sand. FDOT continues to work with the city of Fort Lauderdale on the final design plans for this half mile stretch.
