The Wekiva Trail PD&E Study began in May 2012 and was originally scheduled to be completed by Spring 2013. The of the project has been delayed due to cultural resource findings during the course of the study. The findings require the MPO to obtain Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and State Historical Preservation (SHPO) approval for impacts to the historical railroad and railroad bridge in Segment 1. The work required to obtain FHWA and SHPO approval is being coordinated under a new PD&E Study which began in summer of 2014 and is scheduled for completion in the summer of 2016.
The alternatives analysis for Segment 1 and Segment 2 of the proposed Wekiva Trail is currently underway. The PD&E Study is expected to be completed by summer 2016. The project will move on to the design phase for both segments in summer 2016. Segment 1 and Segment 2 of the Wekiva Trail are not currently funded for the right-of-way acquisition or construction phases.
