Construction of the southern part of the Sweetheart Trail in Daytona Beach has rounded another bend. The section along South Beach Street from Shady Place to Wilder Boulevard is complete and open for enjoyment. At a cost of $1.2 million, work on this section included constructing the trail along with upgrading the stormwater system, narrowing Beach Street to make room for the trail, adding curbs and gutters, repaving South Beach Street and installing a streetlight system. Now that the construction is complete, FP&L will install the decorative streetlights as part of their Tariff 1 Program.
The Sweetheart Trail North trailhead is at the southern end of the Halifax River Trail and runs along beach street south to Beville Road. It is part of both the St. Johns River to Sea Loop and East Coast Greenway (Maine to Key West).
This new section ties into existing trail sections, both to the north and south of the project. The final part of the southern end of the Sweetheart Trail includes a section from Bellevue Avenue north to Orange Avenue, which is under construction while the city completes a utility project in the area. About 80% of the approximately four-mile trail is complete. The entire trail is scheduled to be finished in 2021.
Reach thousands of people throughout Central Florida.
Also known as Daytona Beach Riverfront Trail, the Sweetheart Trail passes under several bridges and along side the Jackie Robinson Ballpark as well as Riverfront Park. There are numerous downtown shops and restaurants to enjoy on the route.
