Last month in Titusville, Governor Rick Scott, local officials and trail enthusiasts broke ground on the latest section of Florida’s Coast-to-Coast trail. The $3.6 million segment is part of a trail that will stretch from Brevard County to St. Petersburg, and fills one of several key gaps. Although Governor Scott vetoed full funding for the Coast-to-Coast Trail, the FDOT funded the segment in its work program.
“We are a state people want to come to, they want to come here to get outdoors,” Scott was quoted in Florida Today. “As we add more bike trails, more connectors, it means we are going to have more tourists.”
