    South Van Dorn Street Pedestrian and Bicycle Access Project will add a shared-used path and other improvements.
    Share your ideas with FCDOT to improve project plans by 13 March.

    Open to residents and commuters.

    I could be wrong, but I think they're talking about here.

    These are Pre-Final plans, so they seem very far along for public comment to make any meaningful changes. One thing I noticed is that this will be an extremely steep trail (13% to 14% grade).

    The project looks redundant from a ped/bike standpoint as the shared-use path along Oakwood Rd offers a much safer, more comfortable alternative that takes you to the same spot and doesn't involve crossing a I-495 on-ramp at-grade (although this crossing will be signalized). I still wouldn't want to hang out for 2+ min in that corner while traffic zooms past me waiting for this crossing signal.

    Was able to edit the talking points from FABB and it only took me three minutes to comment.

    Having more options is better. We didn't stop at just one road, did we?
