ISLAND GREENWAY PROJECT
Island Greenway Project
The Island Greenway Project consists of development of 1.2 miles of 10’ wide paved multi-use-path beginning at Mike Chappell Park and continuing south to Alabama Ave. The entire route is within the MOTSU buffer area east of Dow Road.
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.
The Town has received grant funds through the Wilmington Metropolitan Planning Organization totaling $586,031. The Town is providing matching funds in the amount of $146,508. The total project budget $732,539. Preliminary design work is underway with construction scheduled for summer 2015 with a projected completion next November or December.
