Crabtree Creek Trail Realignment and Drainage Improvements

Greenways

During Hurricane Matthew and subsequent high-water events, the Crabtree Creek Trail sustained damage due to flooding and erosion. This damage caused erosion to stream banks and scoured under existing trail pavement.  Due to the hazardous condition of the paved trail this section of the Crabtree Creek Trail was closed to the public.

This improvement project is located on the Crabtree Creek Trail at Mile Marker 11 1/4, (detour is available during construction along Alleghany Drive). The trail will be closed during construction.

Construction

The City of Raleigh Parks, Recreation and Cultural Resources Department advertised the construction bid for the Streambank Repairs Project on September 11, 2020. Bids were received and opened on October 22, 2020, and the lowest, most responsive, responsible bidder was Kiewit Infrastructure South Company. Construction will begin June 2021 and will close this section of trail anticipated to re-open in July 2021.  

The work includes installation of a new 48” drainage pipe, removal of existing pavement to allow the area to re-vegetate, and realignment of paved trail. The contractor will be responsible for providing necessary erosion and sediment control as well as traffic control.
 


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.
