Creedmoor’s pedestrian/bicycle/greenway system is dubbed the Cross City Trail. When completed, the system will provide over 4 miles of pedestrian and bicycle trails throughout the city. The final three phases of the project were recently advertised for bids. More information can be viewed here.
The first phase of the project is already on the ground, beginning at the intersection of Main Street/NC-56 and ending at the Food Lion shopping center and Creedmoor Business Park. Subsequent phases will link the downtown business district to residential neighborhoods in the east (Highland Vista, Mt Energy Acres, Dutchville Downs, Golden Pond, Southerbys, Paddington, and future Amberleaf subdivision currently in site development); in the west to Lake Rogers Park and residential areas along West Lake Road; and finally, residential and commercial areas along US-15 from Hillsboro Street to Lake Road.
The city is receiving Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality Funds (CMAQ) for Phases I – III through an 80/20 grant from NCDOT and the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), and funding for Phase IV from the State Transportation Improvement Program (STIP) Funds wherein NCDOT pays for planning, design, and construction and the city is responsible for right-of-way acquisition and project administration.
