The Florida Department of Transportation’s Local Agency Program (LAP) is entering an agreement with the City of Orlando to close two gaps in the Orlando Urban Trail network; in the North Quarter and in the SODO Main Street area along Division Avenue.

The City must sign the LAP agreement in order to receive reimbursement grant funding fro the Federal Highway Administration via FDOT.

The Orlando Urban Trail Gap and Extension Grant will pay for the total project cost, estimated to be $814,546. Scroll down to see the segments that will be added via the grant.

Regular readers will note that the North Quarter segment will connect to the already-underway Colonial Pedestrian Bridge and into Downtown Orlando via Gertrude’s Walk; a vital piece of an evolving urban bicycle network.
