Project Details
Work Type: Trail
Phase: Construction
Length: 0.257 miles
Construction Cost: $3.4 Million
Project Start: Early 2024
Est. Completion: Fall 2024

The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) will construct two 8-foot-wide boardwalks within Silver Springs State Park—the Half Mile Creek boardwalk to the north and the Fort King Waterway boardwalk to the south.

The 748-foot Half Mile Creek boardwalk will connect to an existing path on the west side of the park before stretching across the creek and meeting an underutilized trail to the east. The other, a 550-foot boardwalk, will run south from the existing Ross Allen Island boardwalk before crossing the Fort King Waterway with a 65-foot timber bridge. After the bridge, the boardwalk will continue for approximately 120 feet south before meeting a 180-foot limerock trail leading to an existing group campsite.

All boardwalks and trails associated with this project will comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
