NCDOT Grant Awarded

Hendersonville, NC City Government recently shared that:

The City of Hendersonville has recently been awarded an NCDOT grant totaling $77,250 to provide funding to study the feasibility of a multi-modal path to connect the Ecusta Trail and Oklawaha Greenway.


This grant will examine the feasibility of a new multi-modal path that connects the two longest multi-use paths in Henderson County – the Oklawaha Greenway and the Ecusta Trail.


The proposed “Above the Mud” greenway feasibility study will evaluate the proposed connection of the two pathways and include alternative alignments for the project to find the best possible way to complete the regional network and meet the intent of the State Great Trails Plan within this area. At the core of the “Above the Mud” project is the goal to complete a robust and reliable multimodal network connecting communities along several trail, greenway, and sidewalk projects.
