The Florida Power and Light Greenway Assessment is an initiative of the Collier County Traffic Operations and Alternative Transportation Modes Department in partnership with Rails-to-Trails Conservancy (RTC). This team was further supported by the firms of Borrelli and Associates and Vanassee Hangen Brustlin, Inc., which each provided pro-bono services to further advance this project. The proposed Florida Power and Light Greenway (FP&L Greenway) is an enhancement of the existing Florida Power and Light (FP&L) transmission corridor located in East Naples to include a 2.9-mile non-motorized trail. In addition to a proposed 12’ paved surface that is aligned predominantly along the centerline of the transmission corridor, the envisioned project also includes visual improvements to the affected areas through use of landscaping and buffering practices.
Initial design recommendations are provided in the assessment and implementation sections of this report.
