Alta is working with the City of Charlotte to plan and design two sections of the Cross Charlotte Trail. This project includes the design and permitting of approximately 3,700 linear feet of the Cross Charlotte Trail between 7th Street and 10th Street.

The design of this project will build upon the recommendations and routing identified in the Little Sugar Creek Greenway/US 74 Connectivity Study. This project begins at the existing Cross Charlotte Trail/Little Sugar Creek Greenway at the south end near 7th Street behind the Phillip L. Van Every Culinary Arts Center (CPCC). The trail will slope up to a pedestrian plaza and overlook at the northwest quadrant of the 7th Street and Central Avenue Intersection. The trail transitions at this intersection to separated bike lanes on Central Avenue, crossing over US-74. The separated bike lanes terminate at or near Prospect Street where the trail transitions back to a greenway/multi-use path, paralleling the I-277 northbound on-ramp northward toward 10th Street where the design associated with this scope will be coordinated with the 10th Street crossing.
