Crabtree Creek and Hatcher Creek Greenway projects were first identified in the 2001 Greenway Master Plan. A portion of the Hatcher Creek Greenway was completed in 2004 as part of Morrisville Community Park, the remaining portions seemed more like a dream than a reality. Significant outside funding from Wake County and NCDOT made this project come to life.
This project provides a much needed east-west greenway corridor through Morrisville connecting to Lake Crabtree to the east and the Town of Cary’s greenway system to the west. Additionally the project will offer a safe pedestrian crossing over Crabtree Creek and underneath the railroad. The proposed route and connectors are set and construction documents are underway. Construction is anticipated to begin in 2017 and will take approximately 18 months.
To help keep those who live and work in the area updated on the project, we are inviting you to sign up for Morrisville Greenway Connections. This short-term e-newsletter will keep you updated on the project from groundbreaking to ribbon-cutting and when and where work will be happening in between.
