Fordham Boulevard Sidepath Project

Press Enter to show all options, press Tab go to next option

An asphalt multi-modal path (pedestrian and bicycle use) currently connects Cleland Drive and Ridgefield Drive along the east side of Fordham Boulevard. This project would improve the existing path and extend it to Willow Drive. As currently envisioned the project expansion would be entirely within the NCDOT right of way. The path would be built to national and State standards for a multi-modal path.

A public meeting was held on August 22, 2018. A second meeting was held on January 4, 2019. Information related to the meetings can be found below.
