Hamestring Creek Trail Bridge Complete
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — The City of Fayetteville has completed work on a new bridge that crosses Hamestring Creek Trail in west Fayetteville. It is located west of Interstate 49, between W. Marigold Drive (south of W. Mount Comfort Road) and W. Woodridge Drive (north of W. Wedington Drive).
The 20-foot-wide bridge and 10-foot-wide connector trails make it easier for hundreds of residents in neighborhoods north of Wedington Drive to access Fayetteville trails and the Razorback Greenway.
The project, which added a total of 700 feet to the Fayetteville trail system through the bridge and adjoining connector trails, was made possible through the 2019 Trail Improvements bond approved by Fayetteville residents.
Hamestring Creek Trail was built in 2007 and extends 0.6 miles along the north side of Hamestring Creek through parkland abutting the Pine Valley subdivision. City staff received many requests for a bridge over Hamestring Creek to improve neighborhood access to trails and the Greenway.
