The City of Raleigh has closed the Crabtree Creek Greenway at mile marker 12 between the trail access at North Hills Drive and the Mine Creek Trail and Crabtree Creek Greenway intersection. This map shows the location of the closed section of the trail and the detour on North Hills Drive. High levels of rain and stormwater runoff caused excessive erosion and damage to the streambank supporting the retaining wall adjacent to Crabtree Creek and have made this section of the Crabtree Creek Greenway hazardous for public access.
The detour will follow the southern side of North Hills Drive for a half-mile and connect to the Mine Creek Trail access. Trail users can continue north, across North Hills Drive to Shelly Lake Park, or south, along the Mine Creek Trail, to reconnect with the Crabtree Creek Trail at the “Z” Bridge, structure #37. For questions about this project or closure, please contact David Bender at 919-996-4798 or email David Bender.
