Palm Coast is planning road resurfacing on Old Kings Road South from Utility Drive to Town Center Blvd. starting Tuesday, May 24, and through the rest of the week.
Workers will be resurfacing both lanes of the road. The road will remain open during the resurfacing, with flaggers on-site.
The Palm Coast City Council in June 2015 approved resurfacing the 4.2 mile stretch as part of a $1.2 million plan to resurface more than 30 streets. At the time, it appeared that the city would get around to Old Kings Road this fall. But the city was striving to move up the project if possible, as the road is among the most in need of resurfacing in the city. That stretch will cost $200,000.
Drivers in the area should anticipate changing traffic patterns and periodic lane closures. Travelers should be aware of heavy equipment and stay within the limits of the traffic control devices. Workers on the ground appreciate the cooperation and patience of residents as the road repair proceeds.
