What is This Project?
This project will create a bicycle and pedestrian connection between the large residential areas north of Wedington Drive (Hwy16) and provide access to the Meadow Valley Trail and Razorback Greenway with a new bridge over Hamestring Creek.
Why is it Important?
The City has received many requests for this connection over the years. Currently people in the Wedington Corridor must choose to ride or walk on the unsafe bridge over I-49 or to go north they cross Hamestring creek over a sewer line capped with concrete. During high water this is not an option. This new bridge will create an all-weather trail connection across Hamestring Creek to the Meadow Valley Trail and the Razorback Regional Greenway.
What is the Current Status?
The trail and bridge is under construction by Diamond C Construction
When Will it be Completed?
This project was completed in January 2022.
How is it Funded?
Funding for the City’s portion of the project comes from the 2019 Bond Issue that was approved by voters in April, 2019.
