A public meeting for the next phase of the Emerald Trail system was held on Tuesday, December 14 at the Ed Ball Building. Facilitated by Groundwork Jacksonville and the City of Jacksonville, the meeting included a presentation of the preliminary design for the conversion of Hogan Street into a segment of the Emerald Trail system. With trail segments in LaVilla and paralleling McCoys Creek through Mixontown now under construction, the Hogan Street segment is destined to become the third corridor of a 30-mile proposed system that would be built. Stretching between the Northbank Riverwalk and Hogans Creek, the Hogan Street segment would tie Springfield, the FSCJ Downtown campus and the Northbank to the St. Johns Riverfront. Proposed project elements include a raised cycle track, widened sidewalks, landscaping and shade trees. Here is a before and after look at the preliminary vision for the Emerald Trail’s Hogan Street corridor. Let us know what you think!
