Ribbon Cutting Ceremony
West Pine Avenue between Jungle Road & Pioneer Trail
Ribbon Cutting for the City of New Smyrna Beach Trail Head
Jim Hathaway will cut his first ceremonial ribbon as mayor when New Smyrna Beach officially opens its multi-use trail.
The public is encouraged to participate in the ceremony by walking, running or riding along the paved trail following the ribbon cutting.
Motorized vehicles are not permitted on the trail.
The trail spans 2.2 miles from West Pine Avenue just north of S.R. 44 off Mission Road to Sugar Mill Drive. The 12-foot-wide, multi-use trail has been constructed in an existing utility corridor, according the New Smyrna Beach Engineer Kyle Fegley. The eastern trail head is on West Pine Avenue between Jungle Road and Pioneer Trail. The western end is next to Geiger-Glencoe Cemetery on Sugar Mill Drive. Parking is available at both ends. Along the trail, users cross a 125-foot bridge over Turnbull Creek with intermittent benches and trash receptacles.
Construction on the $1.8-million project began March 5 and is funded jointly by the Volusia ECHO Program, the Florida Department of Transportation-Transportation and Planning Organization, and the City of New Smyrna Beach.
