Roadwork on a stretch of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard from Orange Avenue to the International Speedway Boulevard will start soon.
On May 15, Daytona Beach’s City Commission awarded Lake Mary-based company SanPik, Inc. the roadway’s makeover.
The $2.67 million project will completely reconstruct the road’s surface, update underground utilities, widen sidewalks, install decorative lighting features and landscaping and add on-street parking. The project is expected to take about eight months.
For residents and business owners who want to learn more about the project, there will be a community meeting from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Tuesday, May 21, at the Dickerson Community Center, 308 S. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd., Daytona Beach.
The purpose of this community meeting is to provide the following:
- General project information
- Construction timeline
- Business access plan
- City and contractor contact information
- Sign up for regular project updates and notifications
