Portions of Third Fork Creek Trail Temporarily Closed

Portions of Third Fork Creek Trail will be closed on Wednesday, May 3 – Thursday, August 31.  Several sections of trail will be replaced and portions of Third Fork Creek are being restored.


Now through May 3, users may expect short detours and trail closures to accommodate the construction.  


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


The trail will be closed at the following access points until the boardwalk sections are completed.  For safety reasons, patrons should respect the closure signs and not use the sections of the trails listed below:


  • Southbound access to trail from Martin Luther King, Jr. Parkway
  • Trail access at Courtland Drive
  • Trail northwards from the Cardinal Drive access 

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.
