Beginning Monday, January 31, 2022, Belle Terre Parkway will experience daily lane closures as an independent contractor out of Port Orange specializing in road maintenance and resurfacing works to complete a milling and resurfacing project.
The areas under construction will be both north and southbound lanes between Royal Palms Parkways and State Road 100. To reduce traffic delays, the City of Palm Coast will only be closing one lane at a time but still asks that the public avoid the area if possible to expedite the project.
City of Palm Coast Project Manager Tyler Gibson estimates that the project will take four to six weeks to complete.
“We are very excited to begin this milling and resurfacing project and get this stretch of road back up to standards,” said Gibson. “We know that anytime there is a construction project that causes a lane closure, it can be an inconvenience. We appreciate the publics’ patience and cooperation while we work to complete this project as safely and quickly as we can.”
The milling and resurfacing of Belle Terre Parkway was given a green light after Transmap, a national provider of professional, technical, and management support services to the transportation industry, surveyed the roadway and determined that it required repair. The City of Palm Coast routinely conducts surveys of each roadway to maintain all road safety standards.

The article says it nicely as to the problem this will cause. It’s going to be a mess. I’m not understanding why this kind of work knowing about all the traffic we have traveling Belle Terre during the day time hours, they can not do this work at night. It’s less dangerous for the workers, and less traffic to deal with. Common sense goes a long way. I wonder once this project starts on Monday and everyone realized the problems that it causes with traffic, the city will offer a bonus (and how much)to the contractor if they get the job done faster than contracted for?
