List of Current Projects:
Upper McAlpine Creek Greenway Relief Sewer Project
Mecklenburg County Park and Recreation has been working closely with the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Utility Department (CMUD) to reduce the impact of the sewer project on adjacent public facilities such as Boyce Park, Upper McAlpine Creek Greenway and McAlpine Creek Park. Map

Toby Creek Greenway, Phase II
This phase of the greenway will provide access to existing Mallard and Clark’s Creek Greenways, UNC Charlotte, schools, sports amenities and extensive dining and retail areas. Community Workshop Meeting Minutes
Mooresville to Charlotte Trail (formerly Red Line Trail)
A planning grant has been received by the jurisdictions of Mooresville, Davidson, Cornelius, Huntersville, Charlotte, Iredell and Mecklenburg Counties for a much needed north-south trail to connect and activate trails that would connect with corridors for the greenway master plans for each jurisdiction. This north-south corridor is missing except for some attempts to us Hwy 115 at a bike-ped friendly corridor. Most trail users prefer to be off road whenever possible.
Lower McAlpine Creek and McMullen Creek greenways
NCDOT will close the trail under the I 485 bridge on both Lower McAlpine and McMullen Creek greenways for construction work beginning summer 2013.
Campbell Creek Greenway
