SUN Trail Network (Draft Map to be updated)

Critical Connection
– Priority Land Trail in FGT

– Provides the missing link to connect the trails along


Burnt Store Road and Del Prado Boulevard

PHASE I – 3.5 Miles PHASE II – 3.0 Miles

Project Length: 6.5 Miles Typical Right-of-Way: 100 Feet

Typical Section: Rural 4-Lane Divided Highway Posted Speed: 45 MPH

Project Objective
To prepare biddable/constructible plans meeting Cape Coral and FDOT guidelines and specifications
Trail Benefits and Concerns

Cape Coral Goals


 Become a Bike-Friendly Community
 Reduce the number of bicycle crashes (Lee County ranked in top 10 the State for bicycle fatalities)

Awards
 Earned a coveted “bike-friendly” designation in 2015
 Received Bronze Award from the League of American Bicyclists
 Shows Commitment to creating safer and better places
 USA Today Article Nov 16, 2015 (hyperlink)

Future Goals – Become a Silver Designation


 Increase separation between bikes and vehicles in heavy traffic areas,
 Provide bike education classes
 Allocate bike-related funding to low-income and minority communities
Trail Benefits and Concerns

Typical Impacts: Studies show…….


 Increase Property Values  Increased property values. Trails became a selling factor
 Increased Jobs and Revenue  Local businesses thrive and new businesses start

 Reduction of Medical Costs  Positive effect on the quality of life and health

 Environmental Benefits  Alternative to vehicular traffic which reduces emissions

 Free Recreation and Transportation  No increase in crime rates

 Revitalization of Depressed Areas  Most owners opposed to trail find it to be beneficial

Trail Benefits and Concerns

Concern: Response:
 Too wide. Will attract vehicles  Width to accommodate bicycles and pedestrians safely
 Too Close to the Road  Barrier curb constructed to provide an increased level of safety
 Fear of Being Sued  Laws in place to protect abutters
 Construct trail in the median  Not enough width and is unsafe with opposing traffic
 Reduces my front yard  The trail will be constructed within the right-of-way
 Increased noise and lighting  This is a non-motorized trail. Will not be lit.
 Will invade my privacy  No different from a sidewalk.

Trail Criteria
 Available R/W varies 14’-20’
 Trail requirements:
o 12’ paved path
o 2’ clear zone (each side)
o 4’-6’ roadway buffer
o Maintain 6’ graded shoulder (roadway rural section)
Proposed Typical Section (Roadway and Trail)
 Rural Roadway Section: Eliminated to due Right-of-way requirements (6’)
 Curb & Gutter Section:
o Requires 20’
o Eliminate roadway shoulder (6’)
o Incorporate trail clear zone (2’) into roadway buffer
Per FDOT Design Criteria, trail is
o No R/W required placed 4’ from back of curb
o Possible right-of-entry permission for driveway modifications

Environmental
Site Reconnaissance
 Conducted environmental and biological assessment on August 7
 Documented occurrence/potential of protected species
 Species specific survey completed for burrowing owl and gopher tortoise
 Project falls within USFWS Consultation Areas for:
o Bonneted bat
o Florida scrub jay
o Red-cockaded woodpecker
o Wood stork
 No presence of previously identified Southern Bald Eagle per FWS records (2012)
 No natural wetlands identified
 Surface waters present in the form of canals
Conclusion
 Other than 1 gopher tortoise sited, there is no presence of other T&E requiring permitting
 Impacts to surface waters are <1/2 acre, therefore qualifies for a USACE Nationwide Permit
 SFWMD exempt
