Bridge Structure 37 and 88 Replacement Projects

Crabtree Creek Trail and Little Rock Trail

As part of the 2014 Parks Bond, the following two pedestrian Capital Area Greenway system structures are being replaced.  Construction is currently underway. 

  • Bridge Structure 37 is an existing narrow, sharp-turning timber bridge attached to an existing sewer crossing over Mine Creek just upstream of the confluence with Crabtree Creek. This timber structure will be replaced with a 12-foot-wide prefabricated pedestrian structure;
  • Bridge Structure 88 is a 64-foot timber structure on the Little Rock Trail adjacent to Chavis Way just south of Lenoir Street in Southeast Downtown Raleigh. This timber structure will be replaced with a 10-foot-wide steel and concrete pedestrian structure.

This project will meet portions of the Bloodworth Street Sewer and Water Improvement Project. Little Rock Greenway Trail will be detoured starting June 2022 until October 2022. Detour Map

History

The Capital Area Greenway System was first adopted by City Council in 1976. This plan proposed a system of linear parks located primarily along rivers, streams, and creeks, and included the opportunity for an interconnected system of pedestrian trails across the region. The existing Crabtree Creek Trail extends from Lindsay Drive, east of Duraleigh Road to the Neuse River Trail.
