TALLAHASSEE – Governor Rick Scott today announced the 11 new projects that will be funded this year to help advance the Coast to Coast Connector, which will provide a safe and continuous multi-use trail from the Gulf of Mexico to the Atlantic. The Department of Transportation will invest $15.9 million to complete 11 phases of separate trail segments in nine counties. This new funding is in addition to the more than $26 million that has already been invested by the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) for the Connector project over the next five years.
Governor Scott said, “This $15.9 million investment will help to complete 11 sections of the Coast to Coast Connector which will help to bring more tourists to our state, and create jobs for families in our state. Our tourists increasingly desire new ways to explore this beautiful state and the Coast to Coast Connector will do just that as the only trail in America connecting the Gulf to the Atlantic.”
