The Neuse River Trail is 28-mile trail that is currently under construction along the Neuse River, beginning at the Falls Lake Dam and ending at the Wake/Johnston County line near Knightdale. The approximately $30million project is being funded primarily via the 2007 Park and Recreation Bond Referendum that included $15million for this project. Additional funding has been received from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA), North Carolina Department of Transportation (STP-DA), Town of Knightdale, Town of Wake Forest, and Wake County.
The Neuse River Greenway is currently under construction. The northern-most section is complete. It starts at the Falls Lake Dam and runs approximately 6.75 miles to the WRAL Soccer Complex (map). This section was dedicated in November of 2011. The greenway bridge over the Neuse river at the City of Raleigh waste water treatment plant (map) is complete in July 2012. This bridge will be part of the Wake Forest connector trail. Paving the trails themselves to and from the bridge is not yet complete.
The City estimates that the entire trail will be completed by the end of 2013.
