The project will include construction of 0.5 miles of pedestrian improvements consisting of approximately 1,191 feet of concrete greenway, 102 feet of pedestrian tunnel under CSXT railroad, 916 feet of concrete boardwalk, and 355 feet of concrete sidewalk. The project will also include improvements for pedestrian infrastructure at the Davis Drive and Park Village Drive intersection, minor utility construction, grading, drainage, paving, erosion control, and landscaping. Cary’s White Oak Greenway originates in Bond Park and currently consists of segments of trail that extend 4.7 miles from Bond Park to Green Level Church Road in the west of Cary. When completed, White Oak Creek Greenway, together with the Black Creek Greenway, will extend over a distance of 14 miles and connect to the American Tobacco Trail, Durham, Bond Park, Lake Crabtree County Park, Umstead State Park, and Raleigh. The trail is also part of the planned East Coast Greenway, which will eventually extend from Maine to Florida.
