Ribbon Cutting Ceremony to be held for the CR486 Trailhead project
The public is invited to join the Board of Citrus County Commissioners for the CR486/Pine Ridge/Meadowcrest Trailhead Ribbon Cutting Ceremony on Tuesday, October 8, 2019 at 9:00am at 6415 W. Norvell Bryant Hwy. No RSVP is needed to attend.
The nearly $450,000 construction contract with Daly & Zilch (Florida), Inc. for the CR 486/Pine Ridge/Meadowcrest Trailhead project was approved by the Board of County Commissioners on December 18, 2018. The Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) Land and Recreation Grants paid $150,000 of the $450,000 through a State grant.
The new trailhead is constructed on a remainder parcel of land originally acquired for the CR 486 road-widening project. The trailhead is the western most of the three constructed along the 13 miles of CR486; and will be a connection hub for access to the SR 44 bike lanes, CR 491 Multi-Use Path, the Withlacoochee State Trail and once constructed, the path along Suncoast 2 extension to CR 486. The trailhead will be a welcomed addition to the community providing a safe means of connecting area residences to the YMCA, places of employment, shopping, medical offices, and to various trail networks.
