Project Overview

The Crabtree Creek and Black Creek Sewer Rehabilitation Project is coming to completion. Rehabilitation of sewer lines and manholes along the Black Creek Greenway has been completed between Dynasty Drive and the trailhead at Old Reedy Creek Road. Contractors are currently working on cleanup and restoration items and removal of the temporary bypass pipe. This work will be completed this fall and will not require closure of the greenway. The trail is now open to the Public in its entirety.

In 2024, the Black Creek Greenway Renovation Project will get underway, restoring 2.5 miles of greenway from West Dynasty to Old Reedy Creek Road. The greenway will be upgraded to meet current greenway standards and elevated in flood-prone areas to improve trail resiliency. This work will be completed in phases, and the initial phase will be accompanied by construction of the Cary Parkway Pedestrian Bridge at Black Creek. The bridge will eliminate a 650-foot gap along Northwest Cary Parkway and will improve connectivity between neighborhoods, businesses, parks and greenways.

The single most important strategy is to minimize trail closures, impacting only one section of greenway at a time and deploying detour routes for greenway users. These projects involve careful sequencing so that greenway closures can be minimized. Information about trail closures and trail detours are provided (see further information below). Stay tuned for updates.

Construction Timeline

Greenway Detour Routes

During the project to reconstruct the Black Creek Greenway, and the project to construct the Cary Parkway Pedestrian Bridge, greenway users may use detour routes that provide connectivity to commuter and recreational destinations. These detour routes will follow a combination of existing trails and roadways, and signage will be provided to guide trail users.
