Flagler Shore is a temporary design project that repurposes two lanes on Flagler Drive from Lake Avenue to Banyan Boulevard (.6 miles) to expand the waterfront public space for pedestrians, bicyclists, and merchants, as well as allow for additional programming. Visitors can expect additional seating, bistro tables and chairs, public art, street vendors, street performers and various activities along the expanded waterfront space.

During the five-month project that runs through March 1, 2018, Flagler Drive will be reduced from four lanes to two lanes (keeping both southbound and northbound traffic flow).
