On Monday, Dec. 2nd, the city broke ground on one of the last remaining sections of the Gary Shell Cross-City Trail.
This section of trail will stretch 1.3 miles from the trail head in Wade Park, along Bethel Road, Waltmoor Road and South 17th Street to connect with the existing trail on South 17th Street at John D. Barry Drive. The project also includes street resurfacing and new drainage improvements. A portion of the project is funded through BCBSNC’s Get Outside North Carolina! initiative (GO NC!). Wilmington Mayor Bill Saffo and Kim Blair, BCBSNC Director of Community Relations provided remarks at the Dec. 2 ceremony.
