The Asheville Citizen-Times reports UNCAsheville is spearheading a project to add about 1,200 feet of greenway through property its foundation owns largely to make it easier for the school’s students to get between campus and downtown Asheville.
The university said Tuesday work will begin this week or next to extend Reed Creek Greenway north from Catawba Street to W.T. Weaver Boulevard.
The extension will connect Reed Creek Greenway with another city greenway that runs alongside W.T. Weaver Boulevard on the southern edge of the UNCA campus, allowing pedestrians and bike riders to travel from a point about four blocks north of downtown to the Weaver Boulevard/Merrimon Avenue intersection without relying on city streets.
