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 Trail Access and Parking Lot at 4000 Lindsay Drive, Mile Marker 14.5

A temporary trail has been constructed at the access point and parking lot located at 4000 Lindsay Drive due to the construction of the Crabtree Creek West Greenway project. Please dismount from your bicycle before entering the temporary trail, which is defined by an orange safety fence and signage. The temporary trail will remain open for a majority of the construction timeframe; however, the contractor will close the access during times when heavy construction is occurring in the immediate vicinity. This closure will be necessary to maintain the safety of trail users. During these closure times, please use the next closest available access, located at 4330 Galax Drive. 

Neuse River Trail Construction Blasting Nearby from Auburn-Knightdale Road to Anderson Point Park

Please note that construction blasting will be happening nearby the Neuse River Greenway Trail from Auburn-Knightdale Road to Anderson Point Park. The greenway is safe for use.

A sewer construction project is underway across the river from the greenway trail. This project involves blasting for rock removal, and you may experience a rumble or vibrations. An air horn will sound before blasting detonations.

View project map.

The construction is expected to be completed in June 2023. Contact Dennis Lassiter at 919-996-3474 or dennis.lassiter@raleighnc.gov for more information.

Reedy Creek Trail between Mile Marker 2 3/4 and 3 ¼

A section of the Reedy Creek Trail under Edwards Mill Road is closed due to construction associated with a private development project at 2230 Bandmate Way, Raleigh, southwest corner of Reedy Creek and Edwards Mill Roads. A detour is in place, however, crossing Edwards Mill and Reedy Creek Roads is required to continue along the Reedy Creek Trail. The detour is expected to be in place through the end of May 2023. Greenway improvements associated with the development project will consist of expanding and enhancing the greenway tunnel under Edwards Mill Road. A temporary closure with detour plan has been developed to divert the public away from the improvements during construction.
