Crabtree Creek Trail Improvements at Lassiter Mill Road

Strengthening greenway connections

This project will improve a section of the Crabtree Creek greenway trail corridor between Hartford Street and Lassiter Mill Road. The project includes enhancements to the currently unpaved trail section and stream bank just west of Lassiter Mill Road; removal of the timber boardwalk and steps along Hartford Street and improvements along the Lassiter Mill Road vehicular bridge.

These improvements will help strengthen the cross-city connection of the Crabtree Creek Corridor. Cross-city Greenway Trails are identified as main routes of the Capital Area Greenway System, providing connections throughout the city and to neighboring jurisdictions. To the east, Crabtree Creek connects to the Neuse River Trail, Knightdale, Wake Forest, and Johnson County. To the west, it connects to Mine Creek Trail and Umstead State Park, with the completion of the Crabtree Creek West project.

The Crabtree Creek Trail Improvements at Lassiter Mill Road project is being conducted in three (3) phases, with the initial phase including, survey, flood study, public engagement, and alternative analysis.  This phase is currently underway and is anticipated to be completed by Summer 2019.  Public involvement meetings are tentatively planned to occur in March – April 2019. Public notices will be issued to the surrounding property owners and posted on the City of Raleigh website when a schedule is finalized.

Once Phase One is complete the second phase to include design, permitting, and bidding assistance is anticipated to be completed Summer 2020. 

A third phase would include construction administration (CA), construction engineering & inspections (CEI) and construction material testing (CMT). Estimated construction completion is anticipated to be Summer 2021. Phase 2 and 3 will be added to the contract at a later time by amendment(s).

Design

The consultant design team has completed proposed improvements along Hertford Street and Lassiter Mill Road bridge over Crabtree Creek. The next steps for the project include finalizing a 75% version of construction documents. Once the final construction plans and permits have been approved, the project will be publicly bid for construction.
