Six-laning of Palm Coast Pkwy, Old Kings Road extension, Palm Harbor Pkwy extension and Matanzas Interstate 95 interchange.
PALM COAST, FL – November 25, 2015 – All six lanes are open on Palm Coast Pkwy between Florida Park Drive and Boulder Rock. Palm Coast has scheduled a ribbon cutting to mark the completion of the widening project. The ceremony will be held at the Community Center at 9:00 A.M. on December 10th.
The extension of Old Kings Road North to Matanzas Pkwy is 20% complete according to the Palm Coast City Manager’s office. Old Kings Road south of Forest Grove has been paved and striped. The extended road is still under construction. Clean fill is being brought in and stormwater pipe is being installed.
The extension of Palm Harbor Pkwy to Old Kings Road North is 33% complete. The contractor is digging a retention pond at the corner of Forrest Grove and Palm Harbor Pkwy. De-mucking the road site north of Forrest Grove to the Conservatory Subdivision continues. Installation of stormwater pipes is almost complete on the new road from Conservatory Subdivision to Old Kings Road. Water and wastewater mains have been installed.
Ramp construction continues on the new Interstate 95 interchange at Matanzas Woods Pkwy. The project is 50% completed. The interchange is scheduled to open in the spring of 2016.
Completion of these vital road projects will have a dramatic effect on traffic patterns and the driving habits of local residents, particularly those living north or Palm Coast Pkwy. Improved access will spur both residential and commercial development. Watch for commercial development near the intersection of Matanzas Woods Pkwy and U.S. Route 1.
