Improvements to a section of the Mine Creek Greenway Trail are proposed at Shelley Lake and south of Shelley Lake. At Shelley Lake, the improvements proposed include repairs to trail structure #17 and the replacement of trail structure #19. Improvements south of Shelley Lake include the removal of two existing wooden trail structures (#32 and #33) and the realignment of the existing trail. At this location, the trail is proposed to be realigned to the northwest side of Mine Creek and in alignment with the existing sewer easement. In addition, a decorative barrier fence is proposed along the proposed trail in this location. A greenway easement will need to be acquired as part of this process.

This project is being coordinated with a Raleigh Water project that includes sewer improvements along this section of Mine Creek.
The City hosted a Open House meeting at Sertoma Arts Center on June 22, 2022 to gather input and feedback.
