Old Kings Road Widening  

The City of Palm Coast was seeking a firm to provide professional engineering services to reduce the congestion on Old Kings Road. The City was looking to improve the flow of traffic along the North-South corridor of Old Kings Road from the Matanzas Woods Parkway to Palm Coast Parkway.   DRMP was selected to provide the widening of the roadway, and brought a multi-faceted firm to the design team.  

DRMP’s traffic engineering team was responsible for signing and pavement marking and signalization design for this roadway widening from a 2-lane rural section to a 4-lane urban divided facility approximately 3.33-miles from Palm Coast Parkway to Forest Grove Drive.  The 4-lane facility will be a divided urban arterial roadway with two, 11-foot lanes in each direction, curb and gutter with a closed drainage system, a 15.5-foot median, a 4-foot utility strip behind the back of curb and a concrete sidewalk on both sides of the road.

All signing and pavement markings designed increased driver safety and awareness to the surrounding roadways. If signs and markings are followed as instructed collision impact points will be kept to a minimum. Signalization designs provided reduce driver frustration from the intersection and increase traffic flow efficiency.
