​​This project will extend the Cross Charlotte Trail main alignment from East Craighead Road to North Tryon Street, with additional connectors to the surrounding area. This segment is currently under study to determine a recommended alignment and trail dimensions, as well as recommended amenities.

​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 businesses once they are determined, and they will be posted on this page and on the Citywide Events Calendar.

The following public meetings for this segment have taken place so far:

  • Oct. 1, 2019 at the Belmont Center
  • April 19, 2018 at the Belmont Center

​$7.0 million

​​​Please note this is the funding amount and includes all costs associated with the project such as planning and design, acquiring the right of way, utility relocation, consultant fees, construction, signalization, permits and landscaping.
