Palm Coast Parkway 6 Laning Project
Overview

The City of Palm Coast, through a Local Agency Program (LAP) agreement with the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) - District Five, is completing a project for widening Palm Coast Parkway. The project limits extend along Palm Coast Parkway from Cypress Point Parkway/Boulder Rock Drive to Florida Park Drive, a distance of approximately 1.23 miles.

Needs Assessment

The City of Palm Coast, through a Local Agency Program (LAP) agreement with the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) - District Five, is conducted a project Development and Environment (PD&E) Study to evaluate options for widening Palm Coast Parkway. The project limits extend along Palm Coast Parkway from Cypress Point Parkway/Boulder Rock Drive to Florida Park Drive, a distance of approximately 1.23 miles.

The need for the proposed improvements is based on capacity and safety. The City of Palm Coast has established a level of service (LOS) standard of D for Palm Coast Parkway. The estimated 2007 traffic volumes along Palm Coast Parkway range from 30,900 to 52,000 vehicles per day. By the year 2031, the projected traffic is projected to be 44,900 to 75,600 vehicles per day, a 45% increase. The existing 4-lanes of Palm Coast Parkway will not be able to accommodate this increase in demand and will exceed the LOS ā€œDā€ standard.

Planning, Design, Right of Way and Construction

The PD&E study was approved in November of 2010. The Design and Right of Way acquisition is underway. Construction is funded in the FDOT Tentative Five-Year Work Program.

Project Overview

The project entails widening of approximately 1.23 miles of Palm Coast Parkway from Cypress Point Parkway/Boulder Rock Drive to Florida Park Drive with the addition of pedestrian/bike paths on both sides Palm Coast Parkway. The anticipated widening of Palm Coast Parkway would consist of adding one lane to the outside of the existing four-lane divided roadway. The existing bridge over I-95 was constructed to accommodate a six-lane roadway and would require no new construction but will be modified to an 8-foot sidewalk in both directions along the roadway to accommodate pedestrians and bicyclists.

The widening of Palm Coast Parkway from a 4-lane divided, rural typical section to a 6-lane divided, urban typical section would consist of adding one travel lane along the outside lane in each direction.

The project will consist of new asphalt pavement, drainage, concrete curb and gutter, and sidewalks. In addition, the project will include streetscape and irrigation, and upgrades to storm water retention ponds and traffic control, including signage, striping and signalization. Vehicular and pedestrian traffic as well as continuous access to the businesses and residences will be maintained throughout the corridor for the duration of construction.
