New Greenway Trail
Construction to Begin in 2023
4, 2023) Karl Froelich, Chair of the Greenway Committee and Past
President of the Association, gave an update on plans for greenway
trails at the Steele Creek
Residents Association Annual Meeting on February 23.
The original .6 mile section of the Walkers Branch Greenway was
built by the developers of RiverGate. This section was resurfaced and
upgraded in 2019 when the .6 miles of Phase 2 were completed from
RiverGate to Smith Road.
Construction will begin in 2023 on an
additional 1 mile section of trail north of S Tryon Street
continuing to Sledge Road.
Also in 2023, construction will begin on the .6 mile extension of
the Hoover Creek Greenway Trail along the south side of RiverGate
Shopping Center. A short section of this trail already exists at
Highway 160. When these trails are complete, Steele Creek and the RiverGate area will
have about 4 miles of paved trails.
