The Riverwalk Greenway will be the newest and most elaborate section of the greenway system, with multiple bridges and tunnels. At just over 1.5 miles it will connect the Flat Creek Greenway to In The Oaks Greenway. Once completed, the greenway system will allow for safe, off-road pedestrian and cycling facility from the east to west sides of town and create active transportation options to many destinations. Preliminary engineering, design and is expected to conclude in 2022.
This section of greenway is a critical connection of the Fonta Flora State Trail, and will also play a role in improving connectivity to other greenway and trail systems in the region.
Engineering and design are set to conclude in the Spring of 2021. Please note that the project cannot acquire any ROW until the NCDOT cash balance improves.
