DOT says it has awarded a $604,000 contract to build the 1.3-mile Edwards Mill Road Greenway in West Raleigh, from the Reedy Creek Road Greenway to Trinity Road.
State Contracting of Wake Forest won the contract, to start work as soon as Feb. 28 with completion in mid-October.
The new trail on the east side of Edwards Mill Road will extend Raleigh's greenway network, adding a connection to the Loblolly Trail through Schenk Forest. It also will give pedestrians and cyclists a new route to the RBC Center. The city of Raleigh will contribute $28,000 to the project and take over maintenance of the greenway after it is built.
