Plans for a $10m new trail are proceeding in Cape Coral.

The Florida Shared Use Non-Motorized (SUN) Trail will be a sidewalk and bike path for pedestrians.

The 6.5mile SUN trail will start at Burnt Store Road, run along the north side of Van Buren Parkway, east of El Dorado Boulevard and north of Kismet Parkway to Del Prado Boulevard.

City officials say the path will enhance the area and make it pedestrian-friendly.

Currently, the project is in the Design Phase.  Vanasse Hangen Brustlin, Inc. (VHB) is the lead design firm.

The city council is currently discussing the project and working out more of the details. Construction is scheduled to start in 2020.
