The $2.2 million overpass is, for now, a “bridge to nowhere,” said Gerald Brinton, Volusia County’s director of engineering and construction. It’s the eastern end of a trail that now extends across Deltona and Enterprise all the way under Interstate 4 and through DeBary to Gemini Springs County Park and Lake Monroe Park at the Seminole County border.
Pat Northey, who served on the Volusia County Council until last year, has championed trail projects including the bridge and said she was the first one to ride across the new 415 overpass a couple of weeks ago.
“It’s beautiful,” Northey said. “It will become a major connection point for the statewide Coast to Coast Connector and it will bring visitors to town and tourism dollars to Volusia County.”
