Project: McAlpine Creek Greenway, Extension from Sardis Road to Providence Road
Length: Approximately 1 mile
Location: Sardis Road to Providence Road
Description: The proposed greenway will extend existing McAlpine Creek Greenway one mile south from Sardis Road to Providence Road increasing the existing Campbell/McAlpine greenway system to a total of 5.1 miles, excluding the 5K (3.1 mile) cross country trail in McAlpine Creek Park. It will be the third longest greenway in the entire system and an important step toward connection to the Lower McAlpine Creek Greenway at Johnston Road.
McAlpine, Sardis to Providence preliminary trail alignment
Planning and design is currently underway for an extension of McAlpine Creek Greenway to the south from Sardis Road to Providence Road. Design is being pursued in partnership with City and County Storm Water Services.
The construction of the greenway will be delayed until Charlotte Mecklenburg Utilities completes installation of a large relief sewer across the property. Sewer construction is anticipated to begin between 2010 (earliest) and 2012, depending on funding resources. The first public meetings have been held and the design process is moving forward. There will be additional meetings to inform citizens and receive citizen input. A second Community Workshop will be held in Spring 2009.
