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.

Intermittent Closures - Greenway System Wide

In an effort to improve safety on the Capital Area Greenway System, contractors will begin applying pavement markings on the Lake Johnson East Loop Trail, Walnut Creek Trail, Neuse River Trail, Crabtree Creek Trail, House Creek Trail, Reedy Creek Trail and the Shelley Lake Loop Trail. Application procedures will necessitate periodic, short-term closures; however, each closure is anticipated to occur for one day or less. The application of these markings will continue through late summer of 2022. The goal of this effort is to increase awareness of trail users traveling in opposite directions, to regulate, warn and guide users. This map shows the corridors where pavement markings will be applied.

Crabtree Creek Trail Alert at 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. View Detour Map.

The Neuse River Trail is safe to use, however, construction blasting will be occurring across the Neuse River and away from the Neuse River Trail between Anderson Point Park and Auburn Knightdale Road due to  a sewer construction project .
