Greenway Trail extension work to begin soon

Charles Paiva Greenway

Work will soon begin on an extension of The Charles Paiva Greenway.

City Commissioners Monday night approved a contract with Valencia Construction Group Inc. to build the north extension of The Charles Paiva Greenway.

The Winter Garden-based contractor was the lowest bidder for the project at $2.24 million. The trail currently runs from Earl Brown Park through Downtown DeLand and ends near Stetson University at East Minnesota Avenue. 

In August 2022, the Volusia County Council approved $1.5 million in ECHO funding with the city funding the remaining portion of the project. The north extension will go from East Minnesota Avenue up Garfield to U.S. 92. 

Work on the trail is expected to begin by May 2023.
