RiverWalk Phase 3

Project Update



At almost three and a half miles long, the construction of Sanford’s $14 million dollar RiverWalk seawall was complete end of 2019. The next step in Phase 3 will be the roadway and trail portion.

As of March 11, 2020, the Project Team is in the pre-construction planning stage of the project. The project has been awarded to Masci General Contractors. There are quite a few logistical items concerning traffic and project sequencing that have to be worked out before our Pre-construction conference on March 25.

The scheduling is extensive and intensive because of the size and length of the project. Depending on the contractors Notice To Proceed date, you should start seeing some activity towards the middle of April. There are a lot of moving parts that have to be in place before actual construction can begin.

When complete, the Riverwalk will be an international attraction right here in Sanford.

The RiverWalk project is of regional importance, critical to the connectivity of many communities. It will be an integral part of the statewide bike and pedestrian network. Located along beautiful Lake Monroe’s south shore (a state designated scenic highway), this project will provide one of the most pristine bike and pedestrian experiences second to none in Florida, offering residents and visitors a spectacular view of Florida’s unique and unspoiled waterway, right here in Sanford! 

We ask that the public be patient while we construct this exciting new chapter in Sanford’s history.

 Stay tuned!
