Attention Please

The City of Raleigh has 117 miles of greenway trails. In order to maintain high-quality greenway trails for our citizens, the system needs regular maintenance and care. That care sometimes results in closures and/or detours. The below sections provide an up-to-date picture of where repairs, detours, and closures are happening on the greenway to provide you with the best greenway trail experience possible. 

It is important for citizens to be able to use the greenways for recreation, commuting, exercise, and play. The City of Raleigh staff works hard to keep greenways safe and open. 

Did you know?

Greenway corridors protect environmentally sensitive areas that can be prone to flooding. To provide public access to nature, greenway trails are planned in these corridors where appropriate. Keeping this in mind, flooding can occur unexpectedly on the trail.

If you see something needing repair or maintenance, please contact the greenway maintenance staff at 919-996-4115 or by email or report it on SeeClickFix.

Crabtree Creek Closure Between Capital Boulevard and Atlantic Avenue at Mile Marker 7

Crabtree Creek Trail Structure #106 New Repairs 

Structure #106 has been closed to the public since late 2018 due to damage caused by stream bank erosion. It is a critical link along Crabtree Creek Trail which impacts access by the general public to the entire Capital Area Greenway. This map shows the location of the closed section of trail.

The project includes rerouting this section of Crabtree Creek Trail along the north side of Crabtree Creek to Ratchford Drive. The trail alignment will utilize the pavement of Ratchford Drive, with protected lanes for travel, and tie back into the existing greenway trail near Capital Boulevard. 

This map shows the alignment considered. 

Two (2) construction bids were received on October 19, 2020, and the project was re-advertised on October 26, 2020.  On November 17, 2020, the Raleigh City Council awarded a construction contract to Lanier Construction, Co. Inc. for the Structure 106 project.

Schedule 

  • January 2021 - Start Construction
  • July 2021 - Complete Construction
