PALM COAST—The six-laning of Palm Coast Parkway is scheduled to begin Monday, city officials said.
The project, which will widen Palm Coast Coast Parkway from four lanes to six, will stretch about 1.2 miles, from Cypress Point Parkway to Florida Park Drive.
Daytona Beach-based P & S Paving Inc. will do the work, which will includes constructing 8-foot-wide pedestrian walkways on both sides of Palm Coast Parkway. New turning lanes at Cypress Point Parkway will also be added, as well as 458 trees.
The total contract amount is $10.5 million. The project is scheduled to be completed by December 2015.
Motorists and other travelers should expect nighttime lane closures along Palm Coast Parkway between 9 p.m. and 7 a.m. Monday through Friday.
Up-to-date information about road blockages and/or detours will be posted online at palmcoastpkwy.com.
A project hotline number has been established to assist the public with questions and concerns at 1-800-515-9194.
Weather conditions and other unforeseen circumstances could alter work schedules.
Travelers should to be aware of heavy equipment and stay within the limits of the orange cones and barrels.
Design to make Old Kings Road four lanes moves ahead
The project won’t be complete for a few years, but the City Council on Tuesday appeared to be in consensus to move forward with Jacksonville-based Dyer, Riddle, Mills & Precourt Inc. for the design phase of the four-laning of Old Kings Road.
The 3.44-mile project would widen Old Kings Road from Palm Coast Parkway, north, to Forest Grove Drive.
The contract is not to exceed $1,999.999.10, according to city documents. The design of the project will be funded from the Florida Department of Transportation's County Incentive Grant Program.
The item was discussed by the City Council at a workshop, and so no formal vote was taken.
