Shared-Use Path Along South Palmetto Avenue
From Ridge Boulevard to Beville Road
Cities of South Daytona and Daytona Beach, Volusia County
Financial Project Identification (FPID) No.: 439865-2
Dear Government Partner:
On behalf of the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT), I invite you to an open house regarding the proposed design for a new shared-use path along South Palmetto Avenue from Ridge Boulevard to Beville Road. The intent of the project is to close a gap in the St. Johns River to Sea Loop trail.
The path is being developed as part of the state’s Shared-Use Nonmotorized (SUN) Trail program, which provides funding to help create a statewide system of paved multi-use trails for bicyclists and pedestrians. The new trail along South Palmetto Avenue will be 10 to 12 feet wide and separated from the roadway by a grassed buffer. The trail will replace the existing concrete sidewalk on the east side of the road until reaching Beville Road where it will cross South Palmetto Avenue and connect to the existing trail on the west side of the road entering Daytona Beach.
The open house is scheduled for Thursday, January 16, 2020, from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. at the Piggotte Community Center at 504 Big Tree Road, South Daytona, FL 32119. During the open house, attendees will have an opportunity to review project displays, speak with project team members, and watch a short video presentation that will run on a continuous loop. There will not be a formal presentation.
