First Leg of Cross-City Trail Complete

First Leg of Cross-City Trail Complete

Officially opened on August 29

The first piece of the Cross-City Trail along Eastwood Road between Military Cutoff Road and Cardinal Drive was officially opened on Friday, August 29. The event took place near the intersection of Rogersville and Eastwood roads.

The Cross-City Trail will be a 10-mile long off-road, multi-use trail connecting the new Bethel Road Park to the Heide-Trask Drawbridge at the Intracoastal Waterway. It will provide bicycle and pedestrian access to numerous retail establishments and recreational, cultural and educational destinations.

The trail will be constructed in phases. New signs identifying the trail will be installed as the project progresses. The next portion to be constructed will be a multi-use path along South 17th Street between John D. Barry Drive, Halyburton Park and the Cameron Art Museum.

Once completed, the Cross-City Trail will connect Bethel Road Park, Halyburton Park, Cameron Art Museum, the future Independence Park, Alderman Elementary School, Independence Mall, Hanover Center, Empie Park, McCrary Park, University of North Carolina - Wilmington, Autumn Hall and the Summers Rest Trail.

The Cross-City Trail is expected to be completed in 5-7 years and is partially funded by the 2006 Parks and Greenspace Bond.
