Before, left, and after repairs to the Shared Use Path along Dixie Beach Boulevard, near Periwinkle Way. Bumps and cracks from root damage in sections of the 26-mile path system raised safety concerns. The island-wide project was approved by council in May.

Repairs to the Shared Use Path got underway Monday, Aug. 22. The island-wide project includes repairing root-damaged sections of path, path overlays, edge repairs and striping repairs. It has been two years since the last maintenance project, typically done annually, out of budget concerns during the pandemic. But bumps and cracks from root damage raised safety concerns. Council approved the project in May for $298,756. It is scheduled to be completed in 30 days.   The city urges all SUP users to use caution while navigating barricaded areas under repair throughout the project.
