PALM COAST, FL – March 4, 2016 – Matanzas Woods Parkway will be closed temporarily between Bird of Paradise Drive and Old Kings Road beginning on March 12 while Matanzas High School is closed for Spring Break to accommodate the completion of the Interstate 95 interchange.
“The contractor has requested the road closure so they can complete this portion of the road work in a safe manner,” said County Engineer Faith Alkhatib. “There are many moving operations required to complete the work. This closure will enhance worker safety and will facilitate the completion of the project.”
Motorists will be required to use a detour around the area using Old Kings Road and U.S. 1.
The roadway will be closed beginning at 8 a.m. March 12 through March 20.
A ribbon-cutting event for the interchange is scheduled at 3:30 p.m. on March 28. Additional details about the event will be released soon.
“This $9 million project has been in the works for more than a decade,” County Administrator Craig Coffey said. “We are very excited to be so near completion.”
