The South Sumter Connector Trail PD&E Study is completed. The PD&E Study evaluated alignments for a multi-use trail that will close the 22-mile gap between the Good Neighbor Trail in Hernando County and the Van Fleet Trail in Sumter County. The South Sumter Connector Trail is part of the larger Coast to Coast Trail, which extends approximately 250 miles across the peninsula of Florida from the Gulf of Mexico in St. Petersburg to the Atlantic Ocean in the vicinity of the Canaveral National Seashore.
A PD&E study is the FDOT’s process for adhering to the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) and related federal and state statutes. This process involves preliminary engineering to determine multi-use trail concepts; environmental evaluations to assess impacts associated with a new multi-use trail; and extensive public involvement and agency coordination.
All final PD&E Study reports are now available on this page. A final newsletter was sent to property owners and other interested parties on June 24, 2020.
