The Florida Department of Transportation Funds New Parkway

Dec. 7, 2022
The new project has been planned for nearly five years

Attention residents of Bunnell, Florida: A new parkway connecting State Road 100 and U.S. 1 is coming thanks to funding from the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT)

The parkway has been planned for nearly five years, explained County Engineer Faith Alkhatib at a December 5 Flagler County Commission meeting.

The commission approved three consent agenda items to begin the project: an interlocal agreement between the county and Bunnell, a state-funded grant from FDOT and a services agreement to update the design.

The parkway will connect S.R. 100 to the south side of Bunnell on U.S. 1.

The access road will be a two-lane, 1.7-mile road with 8-foot shoulders, 5-foot sidewalks, a wildlife fence and five stormwater management ponds, according to meeting documents. 

The overall cost is expected to reach almost $11 million, according to meeting documents.

The city of Bunnell will be funding design and utility costs, Alkhatib said.

FDOT has also provided a $6.8 million grant for the project, but that money can only be used on the roadway construction, not on utility construction, she said. 

Since the original design plans are from 2017, the county will need to update them before moving forward.
