PermaTrak Selected for Cross Charlotte Trail Extension Project

See other great resources on: Boardwalk Design, News

SouthCharlotteConnector1We’re excited to announce that PermaTrak was recently selected to be a part of the South Charlotte Connector project in Charlotte, NC. This project will extend the Cross Charlotte Trail 1.2 miles to connect with the McMullen/McAlpine/Four Mile Creek Greenway system. PermaTrak will partner with designer Kimley-Horn and the City of Charlotte to design two boardwalk crossings for this new section of trail in Mecklenburg County. OnSite Construction will serve as the contractor for the project.

Once completed, this project will extend the reach of the Cross Charlotte Trail by seven miles and is expected to be open to the public by mid-2020. The trail is part of a partnership between Mecklenburg and Charlotte counties, and the final design will include 31 miles of connected trail from Ballantyne to the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. Completion of the connected trail network is expected to be completed in 2021.

Be sure to check back as we share more news about this exciting project!
