Summer 2018:  Construction has begun on the section between MLK Jr. Blvd/Bragg St and Gate City Blvd/Murrow Blvd and anticipated completion at end of 2018. Contract approved at 7.17.18 City Council Meeting for section along Smith Street between Spring and Prescott – construction anticipated to begin in October 2018 and completed in April 2019.

Design essentially completed for western leg along the railroad tracks from Spring Garden to Smith Street and a portion of the continued Atlantic & Yadkin Greenway from Smith Street to the Mitchell Water Treatment Plant just north of Benjamin Parkway.  Construction likely to take place in 2019/2020.

Fall 2018:  Construction is almost complete in southeast corner between MLK Jr. Blvd/Bragg St and Gate City Blvd/Murrow Blvd.  Landscaping and installation of public art pieces will be happening October-December.  Notice to Proceed has been designated for October 22 for Smith Street between Spring and Prescott so construction should begin this fall.  The contract to construct the Murrow Boulevard section was approved at the 10.16.18 City Council meeting and construction is expected to begin in early 2019.  Artist Vandorn Hinnant has been working closely with the Ole Asheboro neighborhood on his design for the art pieces representing the neighborhood and Darrah Robertson has been working on the bicycle rack for Fisher Park – both will be installing their work by the end of the year.

Final tweaking of the 100% design for the railroad corridor will be complete by the end of 2018.
