Engineering's Capital Improvement Projects

New Jersey Road Trail
This project helps complete the trail network that connects the Three Parks Trail, Lake Hollingsworth, and the Crystal Lake Trail. Design was completed in 2014 by Chastain Skillman. Construction was completed in March 2015 and the trail is already being used heavily by the public. It was completed with FDOT grant funds. Construction crews will still be in the area in April performing routine resurfacing operations on New Jersey Road vehicular travel lanes.
