US 90 Multi-Use Trail Feasibility Study

Evaluating the feasibility of connecting Tallahassee to Monticello on US 90 through the construction of a multi-use trail is currently being studied by the CRTPA.  The US 90 Multi-Use Trail Feasibility Study was initiated in late 2019 and is being developed on a portion of the US 90 corridor approximately 21 miles in length (from Pedrick Road in the City of Tallahassee continuing eastwards to the Monticello Bike Trail in the City of Monticello).

As a background, a multi use trail provides a paved, protected area for a variety of activities, including walking, cycling, running, and jogging that accommodates users of all ages.  Such facilities are a valuable recreational asset and can also serve to safely connect communities in manner that expands mobility options and enhances safety (to learn more about trail safety, view this video developed by the State of Florida).  Furthermore, regional trail facilities (as is proposed by this study), provide a positive economic impact to the region by attracting visitors.

Currently, the corridor contains sidewalks along two portions of US 90.  Specifically, in Leon County sidewalks exist from Pedrick Road east to Interstate 10 and in Jefferson County sidewalks exist from Crooked Creek Lane eastward to the project’s terminus at the Monticello Bike Trail.  Additionally, on-street bicycle lanes exist on US 90 in Leon County from Pedrick Road eastward to Summit Lake Drive (just east of Interstate 10).

The US 90 Multi-Use Trail Feasibility Study will be evaluating the feasibility of constructing a 10 to 12 foot wide multi-use trail along US 90 in a manner that takes advantage of the corridor’s natural beauty.

The following provides the project goals:

  • Provide a safe, continuous multimodal  facility between Tallahassee and  Monticello
  • Expand upon the growing SUNTrails Regional Trail Network
  • Provide new alternative transportation  opportunities for residents, businesses,  and visitors along the US 90 corridor
  • Spur economic development and activity through attracting visitors
