Project Description

This project extends the existing West Ellerbee Creek Trail 1.2 miles north connecting the trail between Westover Park and North/South Greenway on Stadium Drive. The ADA accessible trail is a 10' wide path consisting of concrete sidewalks, asphalt paths, and wooden boardwalks. Trail users are now able to travel along a previously unseen section of West Ellerbee Creek, cross major roads safely, add their own artwork to the I-85 pedestrian tunnel, and connect to the rest of Durham's existing trail network. The project was funded by federal grants and the City of Durham.
