This route provides a safe and convenient off-street pedestrian and bicycle connection between the rapidly developing Wilmington Beach area and central neighborhoods to the north, CB Elementary School, Lake Park, and the central business district. The project is identified as a priority in 2011 CB Bicycle Multi-Use Plan, and also noted as priority in Cape Fear Commutes 2035 Plan and Wilmington New Hanover Greenway Plan.
