Palm Coast – The City of Palm Coast will make repairs to the Rymfire Drive Parkway pedestrian bridges due to deterioration. These bridges are part of the pedestrian walkway near Rymfire Elementary School. The repairs will begin on Monday, January 10 and the completion is expected to take four to five weeks.
The project scope will include replacing all decking boards with Marine grade materials to ensure a longer lifespan than regular pressure treated wood. The structural integrity will be examined to determine if there is any damage. Any damage noted will be replaced.
The construction will not impact people utilizing the sidewalk. There will be cones marking the construction areas giving pedestrians or bicyclists the ability to travel around the cones to continue on their way.
Any questions should be directed to the City of Palm Coast by submitting a ticket through Palm Coast Connect at palmcoastconnect.com or calling Customer Service at 386-986-2360.

This bridge is near my house and has been damaged for about a month now. Four to five weeks, how slow are these guys that are doing the repairs? I’m in my 60’s and can repair this myself in a week and a half. From what I see in the picture there are three guys working on this bridge. You would think being it’s a ped. bridge and some kids using it to walk to school, they would have it done in 4 days. The road repair on Royal Palm Parkway didn’t take this long. Unbelievable and I guess they’re working under job security mentality and tax payers wasted money. JMO.
