​​​This project will extend the Cross Charlotte Trail from Matheson Avenue to East Craighead Road. This segment is currently under study to determine a recommended alignment and trail dimensions, as well as recommended amenities. While this segment is not yet funded for construction, cost estimates will be developed at the end of planning phase.

​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 will be shared with residents and businesse​s once they are determined, and they will be posted on this page and on the Citywide Events Calendar.

​To be determined

NOTE: This segment is not yet funded for construction

​​​​​​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​
