The City of Daytona Beach is continuing to adjust its plans for safely managing an increased number of visitors coming to the beach throughout the summer months. With the focus on the health and safety of the city’s residents and visitors during the COVID-19 pandemic, several proactive measures are being implemented starting this weekend to encourage social distancing by reducing traffic and crowd congestion in the core tourist area, along A1A from International Speedway Boulevard to Oakridge Boulevard. The measures will begin this weekend and continue as conditions warrant or as new social distancing recommendations are made by health and local officials.

“With area attractions still closed or limiting the number of attendees, we realize beaches are a popular destination. We want beachgoers to come, enjoy Daytona Beach’s beautiful beach and still adhere to the recommended guidelines for social distancing,” said Daytona Beach Mayor Derrick Henry.

Measures include:

  • During peak hours and as conditions warrant, travel lanes on A1A will be restricted for cars exiting at beach ramps. Daytona Beach police units will direct motorists either northbound or southbound on A1A or across the bridge, depending on the location.
  • Temporary fencing has been placed along the sidewalks on both sides of A1A to protect pedestrians and to discourage pedestrians from entering traffic lanes. Pedestrians are encouraged to use the established crosswalks at intersections.
  • Foot traffic will be limited in the city’s bandshell and boardwalk area.

Signage encouraging social distancing will be posted throughout the area. These safety measures are expected to be in place throughout the busy summer months.
