West Ellerbee Creek Trail Project, Phase II

This two-directional multi-use 10’ wide greenway trail project will connect Phase I of the West Ellerbee Creek Trail that terminates at Westover Park near Guess Road to the North/South Greenway on Stadium Drive.

The new one mile extension will follow West Ellerbee Creek and connect residents and visitors to Westover Park, shopping on North Pointe Drive, residential communities, and Durham’s existing trail network.


Construction will affect a portion of Westover Park where the trail is being constructed. Traffic on Guess Road and North Point Drive will also be affected as trucks and construction equipment enter and leave trail access points.  Please be mindful of any area under construction. Construction will take at least 9 months weather permitting and the trail is scheduled to open to the public in early 2018.


The project is funded by the City of Durham and federal grants administered through the NC Department of Transportation.
