The Northend Greenway will officially open to the public on Wednesday, September 4, following a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 11:00am.
Stretching from an area near the railroad tracks on Mount Clinton Pike and ending at Suter Street in the northern end of the city, the 0.6-mile-long greenway is completely paved and open to all.
The greenway will be a vital addition to the City’s walkability goals, while providing an exciting amenity for people living in the area.
In addition to construction of the greenway, this project will include restoration efforts on Blacks Run, which is located nearby. That work will include rebuilding the channel to support better water flow, returning it more closely to its natural state, in addition to landscaping additions and more. Educational signage will be placed along the greenway to highlight work being done on Blacks Run.
The Northend Greenway is supported in part by a $600,000 grant obtained through the Virginia Department of Transportation.
