Greenway Pavement Markings

Capital Area Greenway System

In an effort to improve safety on the Capital Area Greenway System, the City of Raleigh’s Parks, Recreation and Cultural Resources Department applied centerline and text pavement markings on the Lake Johnson East Loop Trail, Walnut Creek Trail, Neuse River Trail, Crabtree Creek Trail, House Creek Trail, Reedy Creek Trail, the Shelley Lake Loop Trail and the Lake Lynn Loop Trail. The goal of this effort is to increase awareness of trail users traveling in opposite directions, to regulate, warn and guide users; and to increase the number of users that stay to the right, allowing other users to pass on the left. Pavement markings primarily consist of solid or dashed centerline striping as well as markings around bollards and text markings such as “Stop Ahead”. The application of these markings began in June of 2022 and were completed in April of 2023. This map shows trail corridors where pavement markings were applied.
