Stuart, FL – The City of Stuart is moving forward with construction on the NW Dixie Highway Sidewalk Extension Project beginning February 17th, 2020. The project consists of constructing 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. Construction is anticipated to be complete in July 2020.
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 will also fill in a missing link of sidewalk connecting Federal Highway, Baker Road, Savannah Road, and Cardinal Avenue to Historic Downtown Stuart. One Call Florida, Inc. was awarded the $246,471.51 project contract.
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 are collaborating in the projects implementation whereby the County will be 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.
