Project Description

This 1.5 mile greenway trail connects Phase I of the West Ellerbee Creek Trail that currently terminates at Westover Park near Guess Road to the North/South Greenway on Stadium Drive. The new extension currently under construction follows West Ellerbee Creek, crosses Guess Road at a new pedestrian signal, passes under I-85, crosses North Pointe Drive at a new 4-way intersection, and ends on Broad Street at Stadium Drive. Once complete, trail users will be able to access a previously unseen section of West Ellerbee Creek, artwork in the I-85 pedestrian underpass, shopping on the North Pointe Drive, residential communities, and Durham's existing trail network.
