From SR 50 west of Cobb Road to the intersection of Main Street / Russell Street
This study was assigned as a task work order under a PD&E Consultant Continuing Services contract. The proposed trail will complete a gap in Florida’s Coast to Coast Trail in the Brooksville area. The proposed gap trail will begin on SR 50 west of Cobb Road and continue easterly through Brooksville, ending at the present Good Neighbor Trail at the intersection of Main Street and Russell Street. The total distance is approximately 3.1 miles. The study included evaluation of trail alignments and typical sections, evaluation of trail bridge structures, analysis of environmental effects, and a public involvement program. The study included preparation of Type 2 Categorical Exclusion and a Section 4(f) Determination of Applicability for portions of the trail through two local parks. The project public hearing took place in May 2019. The Type 2 Categorical Exclusion was approved by FDOT Office of Environmental Management on February 19, 2020 based on an assignment of NEPA from FHWA.
