Big Creek Greenway Phases 4 & 5

Phases 4 and 5 of the Big Creek Greenway project propose to construct approximately seven miles of new multi-use trail from Bethelview Road to the Sawnee Mountain Preserve and Visitor Center. Listed below are the construction plans for Phase 4 and two (2) maps showing the approved realignment of Phase 5. 

Work continues on Phase 4. CRS Building Corporation was awarded Phase 4 of the Big Creek Greenway and given Notice to Proceed on November 1, 2013.  Construction consists of a twelve foot wide multi-use trail beginning at Bethelview Big Creek Trailhead and continuing along Big Creek for approximately 2.1 miles, running parallel to Kelly Mill Road for approximately .75 miles and ending at Johnson Road.

The following is a description of the proposed project: 
The proposed Greenway trail will begin at the end of Phase 3 of the Big Creek Greenway and will travel approximately seven miles to the Sawnee Mountain Preserve Visitor Center located on Spot Road. The proposed trail will serve as a multi-use trail and will consist of a twelve-foot wide paved path, including portions of boardwalk as well as pedestrian bridges, as necessary. The project also proposes three trailhead locations which will provide for parking and restroom facilities. In addition to the trail and trailhead construction, landscaping and other hardscape appurtenances will be provided.
