The detour will follow the southern side of North Hills Drive for a half-mile and connect to the Mine Creek Trail access. Trail users can continue north, across North Hills Drive to Shelly Lake Park, or south, along the Mine Creek Trail, to reconnect with the Crabtree Creek Trail at the “Z” Bridge, structure #37. For questions about this this project or closure please contact David Bender at 919.996.4798 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The revised design approach to replacing the wall adjacent to Crabtree Creek will utilize piles embedded into the rock below the stream and a sheet pile wall placed behind the piles. To counteract overturning of the wall, tie back anchors will most likely be required.
The Capital Area Greenway System was first adopted by City Council in 1976. This plan proposed a system of linear parks located primarily along rivers, streams, and creeks, and included the opportunity for an interconnected system of pedestrian trails across the region.
