Florida Power & Light Co. will be installing 40 new concrete utility poles along a stretch of State Road A1A, and that could mean temporary service interruptions for some customers and periodic lane closures affecting motorists. 

    The poles, scheduled to be installed during the next three months, are designed to better withstand storms and provide improved service. FPL says they should hold up against wind gusts of up to 140 miles per hour. 

    Here is the expected schedule of where FPL crews will be working through Dec. 1:

    • Sept. 9–30: From 3723 S. Ocean Blvd. to 3407 S. Ocean Blvd.

    • Oct. 1–31: From 3407 S. Ocean Blvd. to 3101 S. Ocean Blvd.

    • Nov. 1–Dec. 1: From 3101 S. Ocean Blvd. to 2727 S. Ocean Blvd.

    Residents whose service will be affected will be receiving advance notice. Motorists can expect single-lane closures on A1A during scheduled work hours from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Friday.
