Clark's Creek-Hampton Place Connector
A funding partnership with Hampton Place neighborhood has made it possible to proceed with the design and construction of a bridge and trail connecting the neighborhood to existing Clark’s Creek Greenway. Flood studies are requiring additional time, delaying construction. Construction start date  is not available at this time.   Map

Irwin Creek Greenway
A 0 .5 mile greenway extension from the existing greenway in Clanton Park going under Remount Road and terminating at West Blvd with a pocket park. May 2014 Community Information Meeting Presentation Meeting Minutes
 
Irwin Creek Greenway
Two sections of Irwin Creek Greenway ( Bruins Ave. to Lela Ave. and Summit Ave. to Frazier Park ) are closed due to maintenance through late summer 2015. Granite screenings are being removed from the railroad tracks to allow it to be used for the Trolley. We will be paving the new greenway so that the entire length of the greenway is accessible to many different types of greenway users.
 
Little Sugar Creek Greenway, Brandywine Road  to Tyvola Road 
The City of Charlotte is leading the effort for this 1.5 mile greenway which will extend Little Sugar Creek Greenway as part of the Carolina Thread Trail.
Remaining sections of the Little Sugar Creek Greenway to the South Carolina line are also in design with planned completion after 2018.
 

Little Sugar Creek Greenway, Tyvola Road to Archdale Road
Design has begun on this section of greenway, over 1 mile in length.  A public information session was held April 21, 2014. Construction is anticipated to begin in 2015 and required approximately one year. April 2014 Community Info Session Presentation  Meeting Minutes Map

Long Creek Greenway, Phase I
Phase I of Long Creek Greenway will extend approximately one mile from I-77 to Target along Dixon Branch Road in north Mecklenburg County.

Lower McAlpine Creek and McMullen Creek greenways
NCDOT is nearly finished with construction of   the I 485 bridge on both Lower McAlpine and McMullen Creek  and has stated that the greenways can be used by the public. Trail repair and lighting will be done in the near future. Some closings of the greenways can be expected for that work. 

Mooresville to Charlotte Trail (formerly Red Line Trail)
A planning grant was 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. Most trail users prefer to be off road whenever possible. It will be constructed in sections by the various jurisdictions.

Toby Creek Greenway Temporary Closing Feb. 9
BLE construction crews will temporarily close the Toby Creek Greenway at the marked construction crossing, where the future Blue Line Extension will cross the greenway. The closure is expected to continue for approximately two weeks. Crews will be drilling foundation structures that will support the BLE over Toby Creek. When the greenway reopens there will be a new slightly changed path that will travel around the bridge piers that are being built. The work area is located between Mallard Creek Greenway and Phillips Road on the campus of UNC Charlotte.

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. Construction is anticipated for 2015.Community Workshop Meeting Minutes

Upper McAlpine Creek Greenway Relief Sewer Project
McAlpine Creek Greenway will remain closed between Sardis Road and Independence Road for construction through fall 2015. McAlpine Creek Park, 8711 Monroe Road is also closed except for the dog park and recycling center. The 5K trail events in McAlpine Creek Park will not be interrupted between August 1 and December 15.Map
