Crabtree Creek West Trail Begins Construction

Construction for the Crabtree Creek West Trail will begin on October 11, 2021. The project’s contractor, Crowder Construction Company, will start with the installation of tree protection fencing along the project corridor. Tree removal within the project’s permitted limits of disturbance will take place following the tree protection installation and inspection. 

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. Once completed, Raleigh's Crabtree Creek Greenway will extend for a total of 16.7 miles. There are five pedestrian bridges, including one suspension bridge, planned as part of this project. 

Closure of the access point and parking area at 4000 Lindsay Drive is expected during the duration of the project. Construction is anticipated to be completed by late 2023. The next closest available greenway access is located at 4330 Galax Drive.
