Construction Update: Stewart Creek Greenway Closure – Update #6

CLTWater is meeting with Mecklenburg County in late July to review final asphalt paving and other restoration tasks. The greenway is estimated to reopen mid-August 2020. We appreciate your patience and understanding during this large wastewater pipe repair.

  • The area adjacent to Tuckaseegee Rd. bridge is now fully restored
  • The stone access road was removed, and the entire area was seeded/strawed

  • Grass is coming in nicely throughout the park; shoulders along upper greenway trail have been restored with the exception of parking/turnout area
