Greenways Master Plan Implementation

This project provides $15.8 million in funding to continue implementing the Greenways Master Plan. The Greenways Master Plan is made up of 32 greenway trail projects totaling approximately 158 miles. Per the direction of the Blueprint IA Board, the funding will be allocated annually in installments of $790,000 per year.

Current Status: Of the 32 projects, five projects totaling approximately 19.5 miles have been prioritized by the IA Board for implementation. Of these, the Capital Circle Southwest Greenway and the Lake Jackson and Lake Jackson South Greenways currently are undergoing design. The Thomasville Road Greenway is undergoing a Capital Region Transportation Planning Agency (CRTPA) feasibility study and the University Greenway will be kicked off with the Airport Gateway project. Portions of 10 greenways totaling nearly 36 miles are included in larger Blueprint roadway projects. Outside entities including the City of Tallahassee, Leon County, the CRTPA and private developers currently have actions under way on roughly 18.5 miles of projects. By the end of FY 2025, over 70 miles of Greenways Master Plan projects will be under way or will begin receiving funding.

As part of the program, two projects are currently being implemented – the Lake Jackson Greenway and Debbie Lightsey Nature Park.
