The Florida Department of Transportation plan s a $11.6 million upgrade of State Road 100–or East Moody Boulevard–from just east of Old Kings Road and I-95 in Palm Coast to the edge of central Bunnell to the west, a 4.55-mile project starting in the fall of 2023.
State Road 100’s four lanes will be repaved. Pedestrian improvements are also planned, including construction of a 6-foot-wide sidewalk to create connectivity by closing sidewalk gaps wherever existing right-of-ways allow. Crosswalks would be added on
at the intersections of Landing Boulevard (in front of the Target shopping center), Bulldog Drive (by Wawa), Town Center Boulevard, Memorial Medical Parkway (by AdventHealth Palm Coast), and Old Kings Road South.
Other improvements include installing so-called mast arm traffic signals (see examples here) at Belle Terre Parkway and Memorial Medical Parkway, installing Wrong Way Driving Detection devices at the I-95 interchange off-ramps, and upgrading curb
ramps to meet Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) standards, according to a DOT worksheet. The design cost is currently set at $2.1 million, construction cost at $9.5 million. Such projects typically end up costing more as the date of construction approaches.
With all that in mind, the Florida Department of Transportation will hold a public meeting regarding project plans on Thursday, June 16, at 5:30 p.m. at the Government Services Building in Bunnell, and virtually.
The Department is offering multiple ways for the community to participate in the meeting. All participants, regardless of platform they choose, will participate in the same live meeting.
