 Project updates

​​​This project will create a segment of the Cross Charlotte Trail between Davidson Street near Cordelia Park and the Matheson Avenue bridge. This segment will be approximately one mile long. The exact end point, location and alignment of the segment will be determined during the planning and design phases.

​The project team will coordinate with other nearby projects, such as the LYNX Blue Line Extension, the 25th Street connection​ and the Matheson Avenue Bridge streetscape project​.​

​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

Since early 2014, the project team has been out in the community engaging residents and businesses. Find out where the team has been and what people are saying at XCLT in​​​​ the community​.​ 

For this segment, the project team hosted a joint public meeting with the project team for the Matheson Avenue Bridge Streetscape project on May 10, 2017 at the Belmont Center. An online meeting for both projects was provided May 11-June 12, 2017 for residents unable to attend the public meeting.

​To be d​etermined

​​​​​​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, 2016 and 2018 and will vote on further bond financing in 2020. For this project, 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.
