New Traffic Patterns Coming to U.S. 1 at Old Dixie Highway

Flagler County Drivers need to be aware of some major traffic modifications ahead as construction of the new roundabout at the intersection of U.S. 1 and Old Dixie Highway near Bunnell will require shifting traffic. The new patterns will begin next week and be in place for about 7 months. The shifts are needed to maintain traffic on U.S. 1 while construction of the northbound side of the new roundabout is completed.

The new traffic pattern will be as follows (please see attached diagram):

Next Week:

  • Southbound U.S. 1 will be reduced to one lane and be shifted slightly west onto new pavement. This shift will occur early next week.

What Drivers Will Need To Do:

  • Southbound U.S. 1 traffic heading to Old Dixie Highway will be directed to stay on southbound U.S. 1 and make a U-turn to return to Old Dixie Highway using northbound U.S. 1.
  • Old Dixie Highway drivers heading to southbound U.S. 1 will have to turn onto northbound U.S. 1 and make a U-turn to access southbound U.S. 1.
Also Next Week:
  • Northbound U.S. 1 will be reduced to one lane and shifted west onto the existing southbound side of the roadway. This shift is expected to occur later next week. Once this shift is made, U.S. 1 will have one lane in each direction through the project area.
  • A new, temporary intersection connecting U.S. 1 with Old Dixie Highway and County Road 325 will be opened just north of the existing intersection. The existing intersection will be closed.

What Drivers Also Need To Know:

  • Once the northbound U.S. 1 traffic is shifted, drivers will not be able to get onto Park Place from U.S. 1.
  • The speed limit will be reduced along U.S. 1 through the construction zone, and drivers are asked to be alert and use caution when traveling through the work area.

Please note schedules may change due to weather or other circumstances. Electronic message boards and other signage will help to direct motorists. Updates are available on the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) Central Florida website, www.cflroads.com.
