Project Description

This bicycle and pedestrian trail will be approximately 1.7 miles long. It will extend Phase I of the Third Fork Creek Trail that was built in 2009 and currently ends at Southern Boundaries Park. The new Phase II trail identified in the City's Trails and Greenways Master Plan, will extend from Southern Boundaries Park north to the American Tobacco Trail connection at Otis Street. The new extension will connect users to an existing trail network, Cornwallis Road, Weaver Street Recreation Center, Weaver Street Park, and surrounding neighborhoods.
