Notice. Specific improvements may include pedestrian signals,
pedestrian safety refuges, reverse-angle parking,

Boulevard Multiuse Trail
This project will
construct a multiuse trail for bicyclists and pedestrians along
Westinghouse Boulevard between South Tryon Street and Shopton Road
West. This trail will eventually tie into the greenway system.
Design of this project continues, and the project team expects to
complete final plans in the summer of 2018. Updates will be posted
as the project proceeds through the design phase. See

A greenway along Steele Creek from
