Flagler County to receive $1.7M from Florida DOT

Flagler County School District and Flagler County government get $1.7 million dollars the State Department of Transportation, approved for four projects for area schools.

Funds will be used for: 
  • Sidewalk along Old Kings Road from S.R. 100 to Old Kings Elementary School; 
  • Turn lanes on Old Kings Road going into Old Kings Elementary School, 
  • Sidewalk along S.R. 100 from Belle Terre Parkway to Bunnell, 
  • Sidewalk along Matanzas Woods Pkwy from US 1 to Old Kings Road.
Flagler County Engineer Faith Alkhatib said design of the projects will begin in the next few months and construction will begin in the next year.
This is great news, it will provide a safer route for school children and enhance the connectivity to our county-wide trail system.
~ County Administrator Craig Coffey

The Flagler County School District does not provide bus service to students who live within two miles of the school they attend. The sidewalks and other improvements will provide a safer route to the schools. School officials also hope the sidewalks will lessen the traffic congestion at the school sites by students walking or bicycling to school rather than being dropped off by parents driving them to school.
