Greenway projects will link Cary, Morrisville

From staff reportsAugust 14, 2013 

— The towns of Cary and Morrisville are getting a little more connected.

Last week, crews were expected to begin work on the Grace Park Greenway Connection, a 99-foot trail segment that will link Lake Grove Boulevard in Cary to Morrisville’s existing greenway.

Contractors were also set to start construction on the Downing Village Greenway Connection, a 282-foot segment that will extend the existing greenway to Downing Glen Drive in Cary. As part of the project, workers will also add a 38-foot connection to the Downing Village Greenway from the Twin Lakes residential area and repave 130 feet of the existing greenway.

Next month, workers will begin construction on a 125-foot trail segment that will connect a private trail within Cary to the Indian Creek Greenway.

“While individually small in size, these projects in sum greatly increase our town’s overall greenway system connectivity,” Amy Mackintosh, a landscape architect for Cary, said in a statement. “When complete, these greenways will allow for users to reach neighborhood destinations and beyond in both Cary and Morrisville.”

Construction will occur from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. Mondays through Fridays and from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturdays, weather permitting. All three projects, which cost $130,000, are expected to be completed by the end of the year.

Cary maintains about 70 miles of greenways.
