Stuart, FL – The City of Stuart has completed construction on the NW Dixie Highway Sidewalk Extension Project, which began on February 17th, 2020 and is now available for pedestrian use. The sidewalk extension includes an 8-foot wide multimodal path along the western right of way of NW Dixie Highway, starting from 200 feet north of NW Wright Boulevard to the intersection of NE Dixie Highway and NW Green River Parkway.
The project is part of the East Coast Greenway, which is a more than 2,900-mile national trail located between Maine and Key West. Completion of the project fills in a missing link of sidewalk connecting Federal Highway, Baker Road, Savannah Road, and Cardinal Avenue to Historic Downtown Stuart.
To construct the sidewalk extension, the City also received a $231,780.62 grant from the State of Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) Transportation Alternatives Program (TAP). Martin County and the City of Stuart have collaborated in the projects implementation whereby the County is utilizing its Local Agency Program (LAP) certification and eligibility to participate in the Florida Department of Transportation’s (FDOT) LAP grant program on the City’s behalf.
