Flagler County, FL-The Old Kings Road Extension in Palm Coast will officially open to traffic on Monday, with the Flagler County Board of County Commissioners hosting a ribbon cutting event at 10 a.m.
Flagler County PR Specialist Rose Kiernan said the new four-lane roadway stretches 0.7 miles between Forest Grove Drive and Matanzas Woods Parkway, filling a gap in Old King’s and improving access to I-95 via the new interchange and to US1 beyond.
Kiernan said the new road benefits the community as traffic is now farther away from neighborhoods and schools.
The collaborative project between the city of Palm Coast and Flagler County was paid for in it’s entirety by a grant from FDOT. The project was also finished ahead of it’s scheduled completion date of July.
Guests for the ribbon cutting will need to access Old King’s Road from Matanzas Woods Parkway, where staff will guide attendees to parking. The extension will remain closed for the event and open to traffic later in the day.
