Mud Creek Greenway Feasibility Study

Henderson County, NC

A detailed feasibility study for Mud Creek Greenway done in 2021.

The purpose of this study is to examine the feasibility of constructing a greenway along Mud Creek from Erkwood Drive, north to White Street. This multi-use path, parallel to Mud Creek, will provide safe pedestrian and bicycle amenities connecting the neighborhoods and commercial areas. The study will examine existing conditions, potential opportunities and barriers, trail alignment, cost estimates for construction with a proposed plan for implementation, and research of funding options and available grants. The project includes communication with property owners and stakeholders along the preferred alignments to understand their expectations regarding this greenway and multi-use paths. All recommendations will be informed by a thorough analysis of current land use, inventory of existing physical conditions, safety evaluation of all proposed greenway/ path designs, and public input. All recommendations, approximated costs, and data are based on Geographic Information Systems (GIS) data provided by Henderson County, Google aerial imagery, and available lidar topography.
