Past Projects

The Archer Braid

The multi-use trail is a proposed commuter and recreational trail that would form a vital connection between the Depot Rail-Trail downtown and the Archer Connector that leads to the City of Archer. The trail emerged as the top priority addition to improve connectivity of the bicycle network in Alachua County. The MTPO supported the 2006-2007 Archer Braid project to determine the preferred alignment of the braid and prioritize the segment implementation. 2009 Florida AIA Merit Award in the Unbuilt Design Category
