Raleigh Blvd Trail Realignment and Relocation Project

New trail construction

A section of the Crabtree Creek Trail between N. Raleigh Blvd and Crabtree Blvd (between mile markers 5 ¼ and 6) has experienced stream bank erosion causing the need for trail repairs. The section of trail will align through a wooded area parallel to an existing sewer easement and rejoin the existing path east of mile marker 5½. A second section of the trail, west of mile marker 5 ¼,  will be relocated away from the stream bank and parallel to the existing sewer. This section of Crabtree Creek Trail will be closed during construction, however, a detour will be provided utilizing Remington Rd, Marlborough Rd, Rumson Rd, Barksdale Dr, and N Raleigh Blvd. There are no sidewalks along Barksdale Rd and a portion of Remington Rd, therefore pedestrian access is limited.

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.
