US 90 Corridor Master Plan: Multi-Use Trail
The Emerald Coast Regional Council (ECRC) is a recent recipient of a Department of Economic Opportunity Technical Planning Grant to develop a Corridor Master Plan along US 90 in Escambia, Santa Rosa, and Okaloosa counties. The purpose of the plan is to inventory and identify current gaps in the multi-modal transportation network along the US 90 roadway and develop strategies for implementation of a multi-use trail. This plan builds upon an existing initiative to create a connected bicycle and pedestrian network in Northwest Florida as a tourism attractor and contributor to a high quality of life for local communities.
Below is a map outlining the project study area:
The US 90 Corridor Master Plan project is an exciting opportunity to develop strategies for implementing a multi-use trail through Escambia, Santa Rosa, and Okaloosa counties. This project will analyze the current transportation network of US 90 for constraints and opportunities and develop a plan for connected bicycle and pedestrian improvements. Below is the project timeline:

This plan has a strong community input element, with a public workshop and site assessments of the corridor. Input on design, corridor beautification, historical landmarks, and other components will be collected throughout the planning process.

Project Working Group
A project working group composed of citizens and technical staff will be formed to gain local input on the opportunities and constraints concerning the regional multi-use trail. The group will consist of representation from Escambia, Santa Rosa, and Okaloosa counties and their municipalities.
The ECRC has closed the membership submittal period for the US 90 CMP working group. Members will be required to attend two meetings and at least two site assessments of the corridor.
