Three sections of stream bank directly adjacent to Crabtree Creek Greenway and one section adjacent to Neuse River Greenway experienced erosion during Hurricane Matthew. The City desires to stabilize these areas to protect the adjacent trails in a way that is durable, cost-effective, and meets regulatory and environmental requirements. The existing bank has experienced erosion resulting in extremely steep or vertical sections of the bank with bare, exposed soil and no vegetation. If left unrepaired, these areas could continue to erode, and the reduced shoulder could pose a threat to greenway user safety. Continued erosion could eventually cause damage to the greenway itself.
