Phases II, III, and IV

February 2020
The pedestrian bridge and boardwalks are installed, and crews are growing ever closer to officially connecting and opening phases of the trail. Work continues along most sections with pedestrian crossings (crosswalks and signage) yet to be installed.

New Bridge

September 2019

Crews are making great progress on the Cross City Trail and R-5707 (NC-56 realignment) over the summer. For the R-5707 project NC DOT has closed the Lake Road/Pine Street intersection permanently, and has installed a great deal of stormwater infrastructure. 

City of Creedmoor contractors have begun pouring concrete for sections of sidewalk on the east side of the Cross City Trail project. A great deal of stormwater infrastructure has been installed along Wilton Avenue and Durham Avenue, and preparations are well underway to prepare the area around Roberson Creek for the pedestrian bridge and boardwalk.

Cross City Trail September

June 2019
Cross City Trail and R-5707 (NC-56 realignment) construction continued in June. Contractors are making steady progress on both projects. Much of the activity on the Cross City Trail is centered around Robertson Creek and the Golden Pond neighborhood. 

NC DOT contractors have begun work on R-5707 with replacement of underground infrastructure along the project area. This must be completed before removal of the existing roadway and construction of the new connecting route.

R5707 Project Design MapBarrels are up and construction has begun!  At the same time the Cross City Trail project construction is occurring, the NCDOT realignment project known as R-5707 will also be underway within Creedmoor’s city limits.  This project is managed by the NCDOT Division 5 and will realign NC-56 (West Lake Road and West Wilton Avenue) at US-15 (North Durham Avenue) and NC-50.  The existing traffic control signal will be relocated northward to the new intersection and additional sidewalks will also be included as part of the improvements.

With both projects occurring simultaneously, residents will definitely experience disruptions to traffic flow and other inconveniences.  Contractors will strive to minimize disruptions and ask for your cooperation and patience as they work to complete these great projects for our community. 

Special effort will be made to keep residents informed of progress, potential detours, and other important information.

Creedmoor’s pedestrian/bicycle/greenway system is dubbed the Cross City Trail.  When completed, the system will provide over four miles of pedestrian and bicycle trails throughout the city. The final three phases of the project will begin construction in April, 2019. 

Construction of the sidewalks, greenways, boardwalk, and bridge for Phases II, III, and IV will likely take a minimum of one full year to complete, depending on weather conditions.  As the project progresses through the city, residents with whom the city has obtained easements and whose homes are along the route will be notified of potential temporary driveway obstructions or other inconveniences. 


Throughout the project, motorists may experience inconvenient roadway lane closures and commuting delays.  During the workweek (Monday through Friday), lane closures for construction along US-15 and NC-56 will be prohibited from 6:00 to 9:00 am and 4:00 to 7:00 pm to allow for work and school commuter traffic.  Delays may be experienced at other times during the week as the contractor is permitted to close traffic lanes on these roadways from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm.  On weekends, the contractor is not restricted from lane closures. 


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 Amberleaf); 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 total cost for this project from design through completion will be approximately $6.2 million.  The city has obtained approximately $4.7 million in reimbursable grant funds and will pay the remaining $1.5 million directly, leaving the city's portion of the project costs at only 24% of the total cost.
