I-95 improvements coming

December 5, 2017 – Flagler County officials received word Monday that the Florida Department of Transportation has lighting improvements planned for three interchanges in Flagler County.

“It is always good news that improvements are going to be made within Flagler County,” Commissioner Chair Greg Hansen said.

Lighting improvements will be made to the interchanges at Palm Coast Parkway, State Road 100 and Old Dixie Highway, as well as to Volusia County interchanges at U.S. 1 and LPGA Boulevard.

“This work will be a combination of high-mast (taller) poles and standard light poles,” said FDOT Public Information Coordinator Carolyn Fitzwilliam. “It will also include underdeck lighting for some of the overpasses.”

Construction on the $5.5 million project is expected to begin with LPGA Boulevard on December 12 and work its way northward.

“It should be completed in early 2020,” Fitzwilliam said. “The contract is 570 days, but some of that depends on rain, weather.”

The improvements will be made to the area outside of the travel lanes, but there will likely be some nighttime lane closures that might include ramps, Fitzwilliam said. Electronic message boards will be placed in advance to alert motorists of any upcoming closures.
