SCCT Future Segments
Moore Ave to Suburban Drive (Not yet constructed)
This proposed 1.5 mile segment of the trail aligns primarily along the abandoned Seaboard Coastline rail bed. Beginning in Downtown Suffolk adjacent to the Historic Train Station, the proposed trail extends along a previously paved section of trail for approximately 300 yards near the Train Station on East Pinner Street. The proposed trail will continue northeast across Moore Avenue, and would bridge Shingle Creek to reach Suburban Drive at its intersection with Portsmouth Boulevard (U.S. 58/460). Crossing Portsmouth Boulevard, the trail will merge at the already constructed Suburban Drive segment. Phase I has been funded.
Phase III - A
Driver to Nansemond River High School (Not yet constructed)
This segment will extend the existing Seaboard Coastline an additional 1.75 miles from the Driver trailhead to Nansemond River High School. This segment is a continuation of a planned 11-mile trail. A 10-foot-wide asphalt trail, with 2-foot-wide gravel shoulders, will be constructed within an abandoned railroad right-of-way for approximately 1.5 miles south of Driver until it intersects with Nansemond Parkway. Pedestrian crossings at Kings Highway, Driver Lane, Bennett’s Pasture Road and Sleepy Hole Road are included. Phase III- A is fully funded.
Nansemond Parkway at phase II Terminus to Cedar Shores (Not yet constructed)
This segment will extend the existing trail an additional 1.50 miles from the recently completed Seaboard Coastline Trail Segment 2 terminus at Nansemond Parkway to tie into the Cedar Lake Shores neighborhood at Pine Tree Way. A 10-foot-wide asphalt trail, with 2-foot-wide gravel shoulders, will be constructed within an abandoned railroad right-of-way. The alignment will include a pedestrian crossing at Nansemond Parkway, and trail head with parking and an overlook on the east side of Nansemond Parkway. The trail includes the appropriate signage and pavement markings as well as installation of a Bicycle Repair Station and Pedestrian Counter. This phase is not yet funded.
