The Preferred Alternative consists of a 17.7-mile proposed trail within the study limits. Most of the proposed trail will be a 12-foot-wide asphalt trail, but there may be slight variations in the width in certain areas. The project study corridor has been divided into six segments to help define the implementation and phasing of future projects. The proposed project segments are identified from south to north as follows:


Segment 1 – N. 34th Street to Maydell Drive (2.5 miles)

Segment 2 – Maydell Drive to south of Interstate 4 (I-4) (4.3 miles)

Segment 3 – I-4 Crossing (0.3 miles)

Segment 4 – North of I-4 to Harney Road (3.3 miles)

Segment 5 – Harney Road to E. Fletcher Avenue/Morris Bridge Road (2.7 miles)

Segment 6 – E. Fletcher Avenue/Morris Bridge Road to CR 581 (Bruce B. Downs Boulevard) (4.7 miles)

Any right-of-way (ROW) or land needed for the proposed improvements will be obtained by agreements with local agencies, donation, easement, or purchase from willing sellers. Based on the statutory requirements associated with use of FDOT SUN Trail funding, right-of-way acquisition via eminent domain is not anticipated.
