Bicycle Pathway Along Southwest 8th Avenue Approved
A road project in Southwest Gainesville is one step closer to reality. Alachua County Commissioners approved a 60 percent plan for a bicycle and pedestrian pathway along Southwest 8th Avenue.
The two mile multi-use path would run along Southwest 8th Avenue from Southwest 91st Street to Southwest 122nd Street. The designed path is 6 to 8 feet wide.
Estimates say it would cost around $780,000, which would be funded under federal money. The design plan is now headed to the Metropolitan Transportation Planning Organization for review in June.
