 Project updates

​This project will complete a new segment of the Cross Charlotte Trail through the Hidden Valley neighborhood from approximately Wellingford Street to North Tryon Street at Orr Road. The project team will identify locations that will connect the trail to the broader area bicycle and pedestrian network as well as to the LYNX Blue Line Extension. 

The specific project limits and trail alignment will be defined during the planning and design phases and will be posted on this page and shared with nearby residents and businesses once they are determined.

​The goals for this segment of the trail are ​​​the following:

  • Comfortable - Separated from streets and traffic as much as possible within project budget and other constraints​

  • Accessible and bicycle-friendly - Hard surf​ace suitable for bikes and wheelchairs, smooth turns and limited slopes to meet ADA requirements

  • Enjoyable - Amenities to enhance enjoyment and safety, such as signage, benches, trashcans, landscaping, aesthetic treatments and public art

  • Expandable - Provide opportunities for additional connections and amenities in the future

​​The project team will engage nearby residents, businesses and other stakeholders in numerous ways through​out the planning process. Engagement opportunities may include charrettes, walking tours and public meetings. Details for upcoming meetings will be shared with residents and businesses once they are determined, and they will be posted on this page and on the Citywide Events Calendar.

The following public involvement activities have been scheduled or have taken place​:

  • Sept. 19-21 - ​Charrette + public meetings at Sugaw Creek Presbyterian Church (view presentation​)​

​To be ​determined

​​​​​​The Community Investment Plan approved by City Council in 2013 calls for voters to consider approval of funding for a number of infrastructure programs. Voters approved bond financing in 2014 and 2016 and will vote on further bond financing in 2018 and 2020. For this project, if voters approve funding, City staff engages the community to determine the details of what will ultimately be built. Once these details are known, the cost of the project is estimated and published. Learn more about the Community Investment Plan at http://charlottefuture.com​
