 Project updates

​This project is a partnership between the City of Charlotte and Mecklenburg County. This segment extends the Cross Charlotte Trail, connecting to the heart of the Ballantyne area via the existing McAlpine Creek Greenway and Four-Mile Creek Greenway and tying another major employment center and much of South Charlotte into the Cross Charlotte Trail system. The City has completed .75 miles between the McMullen Creek Greenway and Park Road just outside Pineville City Limits.

Mecklenburg County will complete the remaining portion between Park Road and the President James K. Polk State Historic Site​ on Lancaster Highway. The County’s portion of the Connector is not a part of this project and is included in the County’s extension of Little Sugar Creek Greenway from I-485 to the Polk site currently under construction.​ ​

The purpose of this project is to complete a connector from the Cross Charlotte Trail/Little Sugar Creek Greenway to the McMullen/McAlpine/Fourmile Creek Greenway system, which crosses South Charlotte. When complete, the South Charlotte Connector will expand trail connectivity to the Cross Charlotte Trail by approximately six miles and to thousands more users.

​​​Since early 2014, the project team has been out in the community engaging residents and businesses. Upcoming meetings will be posted on this page.

$3 million
