FLAGLER BEACH, Fla. (AP) - Local and state officials are working on a plan to rebuild a 1.3-mile section of A1A that was washing out by Hurricane Matthew’s powerful waves.

The Daytona Beach News-Journal (https://bit.ly/2e3Fw5J ) reports officials with Flagler County, the city of Flagler Beach and the state’s transportation agency talked earlier in the week and agreed to meet Thursday to discuss possible solutions.

Since Matthew skirted the state last week, motorists have been detoured to nearby residential streets.

County Administrator Craig Coffey says A1A is damaged in other locations. In addition, he says the county is fighting breaches in the dunes in several locations that allow the Atlantic Ocean to flow toward the road and nearby canals. The county remains in a coastal flood warning due to extra-high tides and offshore conditions.
