Florida Connector - Map D
« on: March 30, 2018, 09:46:44 am »
I'm not sure where I should post this.  If it belongs somewhere else, feel free to move it.  I've also submitted this on the form.

On the Florida Connector, Map D has been affected (for the better?) by the Volusia County Spring to Spring trail (https://www.volusia.org/services/community-services/parks-recreation-and-culture/parks-and-trails/trails/spring-to-spring.stml) and the St. Johns River to Sea Loop (http://www.sjr2c.org/).  Both of these trails share a section on the Florida Connector Map D, which isn't on the latest published map.  This is not a proposed re-routing, just a "get off the car lanes when you have a chance to avoid messing up the front of someone's car".

On Map D, most of the route between markers B and C can now be ridden on either multiuse trails that parallel Grand Avenue or on five foot wide dedicated bike lanes on the road surface itself.  (Actually, the ribbon cutting for the dedicated bike lanes isn't scheduled until April 10.  I'm not sure what happens if you ride on those lanes before the politicians cut the ribbon.) Here's the news story about the new section - http://www.sjr2c.org/ribbon-cutting-grand-avenue-deland-april-10

I've created a Google Map indicating the old, on road routing and the new, mostly on trail routing.  Unfortunately, I can't change the color of some of the segments.  (Or at least I haven't figured out how.)  But if you're interested, go to https://drive.google.com/open?id=1WqKwRkmZIlG0iULwKNOBBI_ttf_nSYn-&usp=sharing  You'll need to zoom in to see the off road segments.  Google knows the southern trail segment exists, but it does not know that the northern trail segment exists.

Thanks for posting this, fcoulter! It's always great to get additional information about undocumented bike paths.

Did you submit your comments through the Contact Us or Online Map Correction form on our website? Those go to different people on our staff and I'd like to confirm they were received.

Best,
Jennifer

The Online Route Correction Form. I'm pretty sure it got to the right people; I received a nice thank you email.

Excellent! Occasionally the "black hole" of the internet loses things and since those forms go to a colleague and I wanted to make sure it got through to her.
