Members of the Volusia County Council will cut the ribbon for the newest segment of the Spring-to-Spring Trail at 10 a.m. Tuesday, April 10. Parking will be available at Glenwood Presbyterian Church, 3190 Grand Ave., DeLand.
The 1.7-mile trail segment runs from Lemon Street to King Street along Grand Avenue in the Glenwood area. The project includes an on-road, five-foot wide bike lane on the outside of the northbound and southbound lanes, along with a five-foot wide sidewalk between the road and the right of way line on each side.
The $1,861,785.73 cost was covered by an ECHO grant of $1,474,280.73 and local option gas tax funds totaling $387,505.
The county has completed 13.7 miles of the Spring-to-Spring Trail. When finished, it will stretch 26 miles from Gemini Springs Park to DeLeon Springs State Park. The trail is part of the St. Johns River-to-Sea Loop and is being designed to accommodate walkers, joggers, inline skaters, bicyclists and people with disabilities.
