Segments 1, 2, and 3 of the trail extension are currently under construction with completion of the ground-level trail expected in 2022.  The segment number corresponds to the expected order of completion, although work may be done on any section at various times.  Overpasses over Clark and Bee Ridge Roads are expected to be completed by FDOT after trail completion, but no schedule has been identified at this time.

The southern North Port Connector route through Schewe Ranch is currently in the design phase and no timeline for construction is available at this time.  The northern North Port Connector route is a rough surface trail that is open for current use.

The Legacy Trail connects with the Venetian Waterway Park Trail at the Historic Venice Train Depot on Venice Avenue, forming a continuous 20 mile non-motorized path from Palmer Ranch in southern Sarasota to Shamrock Park and Caspersen Beach Park in Venice.  These two trails connect Sarasota, Osprey, Laurel, Nokomis, Venice, and south Venice.
