A portion of the City’s multi-use trail, between Remount Road and the New Bern Light Rail Station that parallels the LYNX Blue Line, will be closed for two projects currently under construction. The developer of the Silos of South End, Woodfield Investment, is required to upgrade and widen the trail, install pedestrian scale lighting, landscaping and decorative fencing as envisioned in the City’s Station Area Plan. Additionally, there is an at grade crossing being installed at the LYNX Blue Line that will connect Poindexter Dr to both South Blvd and Youngblood St.
The duration of the temporary trail closure is weather dependent. Signs will be posted to notify trail users that the trail will be temporarily closed. The existing sidewalks along South Boulevard will be the primary pedestrian detour route. Youngblood St and Griffith St will be the primary bicyclist detour route.
City staff will work with Woodfield and Atlas Construction, providing information regarding the temporary closure through email distribution to the cycling community, through CATS Riders Alerts and through Charlotte Center City Partners/Historic South End.
