The latest word from the field, via the ever-reliable Michael Bowers, a longtime greenway aficionado, is that the House Creek Greenway in Raleigh is pretty much open: “I rode across the bridge” — for the last couple of months the greenway’s lone missing link — “today [Saturday]! All paving is done … connecting to the Meredith-[Museum of Art] greenway trail. The tunnel under Glen Eden is closed though due to fencing installation…which should be done in a few days. You just have to go around via Ridge Road.”
This is big news for Raleigh greenway fans. For while House Creek is only 2.9 miles in length, it creates a key connection between the 11-mile Crabtree Creek Trail to the north and an extensive network of greenway to the south, which heads farther south and east through Meredith College, the N.C. State University campus, past Dorthea Dix and into Southeast Raleigh, and north and west, through the N.C. Museum of Art, Umstead State Park and into Cary.
