Bridge Structure 37 and Structure 88 Replacement Projects

Crabtree Creek Trail

The consultant project team, Alpha & Omega Group, have completed construction plans and received all approved permits for the replacement of the following two timber bridge structures located on the Capital Area Greenway:

  • 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 similar design that has a clear 10-foot deck width.

This phase is complete.


Construction plans for bridge structures 37 and 88 are complete and all required permits have been approved. The City of Raleigh is currently working on finalizing required construction easements to allow construction access to the structure 37 project area. Once all construction easements are approved the City of Raleigh will begin the public bidding process for a construction contract.


Phase details coming soon.


Phase details coming soon.


Every bridge structure has an anticipated lifespan or number of years it is expected to last prior to the need for replacement. Structure 37 is nearing the end of its lifespan and will need to be replaced in the coming years. The purpose of this project is to develop a design for a replacement bridge.
