The proposed shared use path (“trail”) is expected to range in width from 10 to 12 feet in most areas, but may be as narrow as eight feet along Fridy Place. The trail will be constructed mostly within existing roadway rights-of-way (ROW), a combination of state and local roads. Additional ROW will be required in several areas.
Trail bridges are proposed at two locations: across Cortez Boulevard south of W Jefferson Street (SR 50A), and over the CSX Transportation Railroad at Broad Street just west of downtown Brooksville. A culvert extension is proposed over Wombles Creek. The trail surface is proposed to be asphalt for most areas and required Improvements to drainage conveyances will be determined during the design phase.
In addition to this completed PD&E study, the trail is also in the final design phase, with design scheduled to be completed in February 2020.
