St. Marks Trail/FAMU Way Extension Impact Information

St. Marks Trail was reopened in early June and will remain open, with connections to Gamble Street eastbound and westbound via pedestrian/bicycle detour throughout the rest of the closure.

Gamble Street at Mill Street is still currently closed and is planned to remain closed through the end of 2017. Once Gamble Street reopens, the roundabout will be fully constructed and there are no anticipated Gamble Street road closures for the rest of the project.

Eugenia Street from Russell Drive to Gamble Street is still currently closed and is planned to remain closed until late summer or early Fall 2018, and at that time it will be renamed FAMU Way.

 


Gamble Street Closure

Starting June 1, a portion of Gamble Street near the Mills Street intersection will be closed for approximately six months while crews construct a roundabout at that intersection as part of the FAMU Way Extension project. Detour signs will be clearly posted to navigate motorists around the closure and work zone. A map of the detour route is included below for reference.

Downtown-University Protected Bike Lane Network – Phase 2

Phase 2 is currently underway for the Downtown-University Protected Bike Lane Network. Phase 2 will connect the existing protected bike lanes to Varsity Drive near Doak Campbell Stadium along Pensacola Street and St. Augustine Street. Both streets are currently painted with buffered bike lanes. As work continues, green striping will be added. Physical barrier separations and wayfinding signage will be installed later in the fall.

Learn more about both phases of the Protected Bike Lane Network.


St. Marks Trail Extension

At the June 22, 2016 City of Tallahassee Commission meeting, the City Commission voted to approve an agreement that will provide an opportunity to extend the existing St. Marks Trail north to Lake Bradford Road near the Gaines Street intersection. The City Commission also directed that funding be provided in the upcoming budget to fully fund the construction of the trail and be completed by the time the apartment complex is completed.
