Colbert Lane & Grady Prather Roadway Improvements

Palm Coast, florida

Matthews Design Group (MDG) recently worked with Flagler County to complete the design of 7.1 miles of resurfacing for Colbert Lane and 1.2 miles of resurfacing and shoulder improvements for Grady Prather Jr. Cove in Palm Coast. This project included improvements to signage and striping throughout to improve the safety and awareness for pedestrians, cyclists, and motorists. All signage was brought up to current Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD) standards included replacing outdated warning signs and adding intersection warning signs with specific street name plaques. Additional pavement markings were proposed at specific intersections to improve traffic flow and motorist awareness. It was observed during the design of the project that Grady Prather Jr. Cove had severe shoulder deterioration and sidewalk failure. MDG established the limits needed repair during a site visit and proposed concrete replacement and stability improvements to both the sidewalk and existing shoulder. MDG also provided the design of a full access driveway connection to the Graham Swamp parking lot. As part of its scope of work, MDG secured all permits required by county and state agencies, including Flagler County, St. Johns River Water Management District (SJRWMD), and Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT).
