From Lake Beresford Park to Grand Avenue in DeLand
The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) will hold an informational open house on alternatives proposed from the St. Johns River to Sea Loop Trail Gap Project Development and Environment (PD&E) Study. The limits studied were from Lake Beresford Park to Grand Avenue in DeLand, Volusia County.
The open house is being held on: Wednesday, Dec. 5 from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the Sanborn Activity & Event Center, located at 815 South Alabama Ave. in DeLand. The meeting will be an open house with a presentation on a continuous loop providing a complete overview of the project. Anyone is welcome to attend. Team members will be available to answer questions and take comments. The public may also submit comments about the project at this meeting, or online at CFLRoads.com (search by number 439874-1). Notices and other project information will be saved on the webpage throughout the life of the study.
The St. Johns River to Sea Loop Trail Gap is a 260-mile trail system that will link together several communities including St. Augustine, Daytona Beach, Titusville, DeLand, and Palatka. The PD&E study is evaluating options for a multi-use trail that will close the 3.6-mile gap between existing trails terminating within Lake Beresford Park to the south and at the junction of Grand Avenue and Minnesota Avenue to the north. Currently, the study team is soliciting public input to assist the department in selecting a recommended alternative.
