SUN Trail Ribbon Cutting Set for May 12
The City of Cape Coral invites the public to a ribbon cutting ceremony for the Cape Coral Shared-Use Nonmotorized (SUN) Trail Friday, May 12, at 10 a.m.
The ceremony will be held on the northwest corner of Kismet Parkway and Northwest 9th Avenue. No reservation is required to attend.
The SUN Trail Network is a statewide system of paved trail corridors for bicyclists and pedestrians. In 2017 the Florida Department of Transportation awarded the City of Cape Coral a $1.8 million grant to design and engineer a 12-foot-wide, 6.5-mile-long SUN Trail segment along Van Buren Parkway, El Dorado Boulevard, and Kismet Parkway, connecting Burnt Store Trail to Del Prado Boulevard.
This ribbon cutting marks the completion of Phase I, which is 3.5 miles long, runs along Kismet Parkway from Nelson Road to El Dorado Boulevard, and connects with Van Buren Parkway and the Burnt Store Trail.
Phase II is anticipated to begin in 2025 and will include an additional 3 miles of the SUN Trail segment from Nelson Road to Del Prado Boulevard.The City will soon work to design Phase III, which would connect Del Prado Boulevard to the City limit at Northeast 24th Avenue.
