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.

Lake Lynn Dam Renovations Near Greenway Trail

Lake Lynn will be undergoing renovations to the primary spillway of the dam beginning May 2021 through November 2021.  The Lake Lynn Greenway Trail will remain open. Please take note that construction workers will be on and around the dam and spillway, and we ask that you avoid their work areas, and exercise caution when they are present.

Crabtree Creek Trail Closure between Hertford Street to the North Hills Park connector, between mile markers 11 and 11.5

The City of Raleigh Public Utilities Department (COPUD) is making capacity improvements to gravity interceptors in the Crabtree Basin Service Area of the City's wastewater collection system. Please visit the Crabtree Pipeline Project website for more information on this project. This work, which began in March 2018, requires periodic closures to segments of the Crabtree Creek Trail as well as to other trails that tie into the Crabtree Creek Trail.

Starting Monday, December 16, 2019, the Crabtree Creek Trail will close between Hertford Street and North Hill Park, between mile markers 11 and 11.5. The trail is anticipated to re-open in Fall 2021, contingent on weather conditions. This map shows the location of the detour.

For questions about this closure and related sewer work, please contact the City of Raleigh Public Utilities Department, Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., at 919-996-3511.

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

The access point and parking lot at 4000 Lindsay Drive will be closed from October 11, 2021, and remain closed for two years during the duration of the Crabtree Creek West Trail project.  The next closest available access is located at 4330 Galax Drive.

The Crabtree Creek West Trail is the remaining trail section of the Crabtree Creek Greenway corridor and will extend from the existing terminus at Lindsay Drive to the eastern boundary of Umstead State Park under Ebenezer Church Road. This proposed trail section is approximately two miles in length and is a critical link in a regional greenway system, connecting multiple neighborhoods and business centers in Raleigh. The project includes five pedestrian bridges, two of which will be constructed close to the Lindsay Drive access.
