The goal of the project is to increase connectivity for pedestrian and bike traffic along this busy roadway. We are building a new multi-use path along Blue Ridge Road from just north of Trinity Road to Reedy Creek Road. There will also be a pedestrian bridge that spans over Wade Avenue/I440, and North Carolina's first protected intersection.
The Blue Ridge Road Bicycle & Pedestrian Improvement Project is an implementation step of the Blue Ridge Road District Study.
The City is completing the project in two phases. Phase I was the planning and development stage of the project. Phase I of the project included public involvement, which helped to dictate the preliminary plans for the project.
The project is now in phase II. Phase II of the project includes completing final design plans through construction.
