Archer Braid Trail Creates Kerfuffle in Haile Plantation

The latest kerfuffle in Haile Plantation concerns the Archer Braid Trail.

According to information obtained on the Alachua County website,

The Archer Braid Trail is a multi-use path that is proposed to run from the City of Archer to University of Florida. The project has been the top ranked bicycle/pedestrian project of the County Commission and the Metropolitan Planning Organization (MTPO) since 2004. Portions of the project in the unincorporated area have been funded through the Federal Transportation Enhancement Program as administered through the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT). FDOT has a design/build contract out for bid on the portion of the trail from the City of Archer to SW 91st Street. Alachua County has commenced with development of 30% design plans for the portion of the trail that travels up the County right of ways of SW 91st Street, SW 46th Blvd and Tower Road to Veteran’s Park.

Haile Plantation residents have strong feelings on both sides of the issue.

The Archer Braid Trail will be discussed at the Alachua County Commission meeting on April 24. Public comments about the Archer Braid Trail will be solicited at that time. Residents are encouraged to attend to share their thoughts.
