Miccosukee Greenway Trail Improvements - Phase III

Location Map

Summary of Improvements

This project is a continuation of the existing, crushed shell trail that runs between Edenfield Road trail head and Crump Road trail head, Phases I and II. (Phase I construction was completed in June of 2011. Phase II construction was completed in April of 2014.) Improvements for Phase III will include the covering and protection of exposed tree roots, erosion repairs and control measures, and stabilization of the trail surface.

The approximate length of the trail to be improved is 2 miles and runs between the Fleischmann Road trail head and Edenfield Road trail head. Closure of this segment of trail will be required for the renovation project. The County will be constructing an 8 to 12 foot wide trail with a uniform pervious surface that will be topped with crushed shell product available from a local coastal mine.

The 8 to 12 foot width trail will not require the removal of any trees, and improvements are being made within the existing trail footprint.

Project Schedule

Construction will begin September 6, 2016, and closure of the trail will be required to ensure safety of workers on the project and users of the facility. The closure will be in effect from September 6, 2016 through December 2016.

Funding of Project

These improvements are made possible through joint funding between Leon County and the Department of Environmental Protection through the Recreational Trails Program (RTP) grant.
