FLAGLER COUNTY, Fla. – Flagler County received $1.57 million from the Florida Department of Transportation to complete 2.4 miles of roadway in western Flagler County.
The project improved County Road 2009 between County Road 305 and Lake Disston by widening lanes from 9 to 11 feet, adding 6 feet of stabilized and sodded shoulders, as well as necessary stormwater structures.
“The money for the project came from the DOT’s Small County Outreach Program,” county engineer Faith Alkhatib said. “We were able to do some of the work in-house.”
Public Works provided the labor and equipment to complete the overall project construction management. The department was also responsible for the following: site preparation; maintenance of traffic, shoulder and swale grading; roadway preparation; installation of the roadway base; sodding and installation of signage.
Flagler County contracted with 4C’s Trucking & Excavation to complete the box culvert extension, while P&S Paving Inc. completed the asphalt milling and paving and striped the roadway.
The project was finished ahead of the estimated June 30 completion date.
“It’s nice when we can do some of the work in-house,” county administrator Craig Coffey said. “We try to have one project a year like this, where we can compete some of the work ourselves. It helps us to spread our resources further.”
