Construction in high gear on Heritage Trail

Perhaps the most spectacular part of the East Coast Greenway -- the bike and hiking path from Key West to Canada -- is the stretch through the Florida Keys. Cammy Clark writes in The Miami Herald that construction on the Keys portion, the Overseas Heritage Trail, is well along.
"... Trail construction is now in high gear, with new sections being built to connect the existing 58 miles of trail. Several historic bridges -- a century old, built by Henry Flagler as part of his Overseas Railroad -- also are being restored. The trail runs parallel to the Overseas Highway, recently designated as a prestigious All-American Road."
