Roundabout construction amps up at U.S. 1

July 3, 2019 – The Florida Department of Transportation announced this morning that it would transition to the next phase of construction at U.S. 1, Old Dixie, and County Road 325 beginning at 7 p.m. July 14 – with “continuous closure” and detours for at least four days.

“We want to help alert our residents even though this is not a Flagler County project,” said Engineer Faith Alkhatib of the construction work near the landmark White Eagle. “This is a busy stretch of road, and we don’t want anyone to be caught unaware.”

The construction is scheduled from 7 p.m. July 14 (Sunday) through 7 p.m. July 18 (Thursday). During the closure, the contractor for FDOT will use electronic message boards and other signage to direct traffic through the detours, which are as follows:

 C.R. 325: All traffic will be directed to take C.R. 325 north, turn right onto Slow Drift Turn, and left onto Sloganeer Trail to Seminole Woods Boulevard.

• Drivers heading to northbound U.S. 1 will turn left onto Seminole Woods Boulevard to U.S. 1.

• Drivers heading to southbound U.S. 1 will turn right onto Seminole Woods Boulevard, and right onto State Road (S.R.) 100 to take southbound I-95 to U.S. 1 (Exit 273).

Old Dixie Highway

• Traffic heading to southbound U.S. 1 will take Interstate 95 (I-95) south to Exit 273 for U.S. 1.

• Old Dixie Highway traffic heading to northbound U.S. 1 can take I-95 north to S.R. 100 (Exit 284) and travel east to southbound Seminole Woods Boulevard to U.S. 1.

“Please note construction schedules may change due to weather or other unforeseen circumstances. Updates are available on the project web page on,” FDOT states. “FDOT urges all drivers to stay alert and use caution while driving through or near construction zones. When driving, walking, or bicycling, remember to pay attention and follow the rules.”
