Portions of Third Fork Creek Trail Temporarily Closed

Parts of Third Fork Creek Trail will remain closed through August 31. Several sections of trail are being replaced and parts of the trail is being restored. For safety reasons, trail users should respect the closure signs and not use the closed sections of the trail.

Construction work has begun to restore Third Fork Creek between Martin Luther King, Jr. Parkway and Cardinal Drive. The work includes replacing two sections of asphalt trail with a boardwalk which will improve the creek’s water quality and protect the trail from damaging floods and sediment.

To meet Federal Emergency Management Agency floodplain regulations, work will also include plant and tree clearing as well as new channel digging. Piles of plant and tree debris will be used or removed before the project is done.  

Trail users who wish to check the progress of repairs may visit the project website.  For additional information email Dana Hornkohl or call 919-560-4326, ext. 30246.
