The Florida Department of Transportation has discovered a way to make you even hotter this summer. They will be closing A1A west of U.S. Hwy 17 between July 12-14 to replace the railroad crossing. If you will be heading to I-95 from Amelia Island during that period, you have some time to find an alternate route. The official detour map directs traffic north along Route 17 to the first Florida onramp to I-95. Of course, if you are heading in the direction of Jacksonville you can continue south on Route 17 and access I-95 via Pecan Road.
If your plans for that weekend involve a house party or picnic with out of town participants, be sure to let your friends know about the closure.
