Resurfacing of Tallahassee-St. Marks Historic Railroad State Trail is Underway

~Northern portion of trail in Leon County to temporarily close for final phase of construction~

TALLAHASSEE — In conjunction with the safety and usability improvements already in progress, the Florida Department of Environmental Protection’s (DEP) Tallahassee-St. Marks Historic Railroad State Trail will close approximately five miles of its northern portion, beginning at the arbor just below the Main (Capital Circle) Trailhead, for a resurfacing project on February 14, 2011. The Main Trailhead will remain open during this phase of construction for trail access north into the City and east along Capital Circle to Southwood.

The northern closure will last roughly seven months and is anticipated to be completed in August 2011. The resurfacing restores faults in the pavement that have occurred with age and provides an opportunity to widen the trail from eight to 12 feet to expand capacity and ensure greater safety for users. Resurfacing of the southern phase of the project has been completed and 11 miles of trail is now open for public use between Riverside Drive in the City of St. Marks (16-mile marker) and the Wakulla/Leon County line (5 mile marker).
