At the September 10 community meeting hosted by the HCCA, Lora Sepion, City of Asheville project manager, gave an update on the planned sidewalk along New Haw Creek Road between Bell Road and Beverly Road.
This planned one-mile sidewalk is currently in the first design phase which is expected to be completed at the end of 2019. Opportunities to provide public feedback will be available before the design plan is finalized.
In the designs presented in September, the number of crossing had been reduced to two from four. The crossings will be marked with high-visibility signs and blinking beacons. The document linked above shows the current plan for the sidewalk.
Once the plans are finalized, construction is expected to last 15 months, but right-of-way acquisitions could slow down this timeline.
