2022-2023 Trail Repair Closures

Repaving of the existing asphalt on various trails throughout Durham began Spring 2022. The trails are being repaved to fix cracking, potholes, and minor drainage issues and add a center dashed line. While under construction, portions of the trails will be closed until complete. Construction is expected to be completed Spring 2023. For additional information about this project, visit the City of Durham Public Works page and check out the 2022-2023 Trail Repair Project Map.

Current Closures

  • Beginning April 18, the portion of Ellerbee Creek Trail, between W. Murray Avenue and Club Boulevard, is closed for repairs until construction is complete. View the Detour Map for recommended alternative routes.
  • Beginning May 2, the portion of South Ellerbee Creek Trail, between W. Club Boulevard to Green Street, is closed for repairs until construction is complete.
  • Beginning May 18, the portion of West Ellerbee Creek Trail, between Maryland Avenue and Albany Street, is closed and is expected to re-open May 20. This portion of trails will also be closed for repairs starting May 31 and is expected to be closed until June 17. 
  • Beginning late June/early July 2022, the portion of South Ellerbee Creek Trail, between Washington Street and Dacian Avenue, is expected to be closed. Please check back for specific dates and a Detour Map for recommended alternative routes.
  • Beginning late June/early July 2022, the portion of Warren Creek Trail, between Horton Road and Stadium Drive, is expected to be closed. Please check back for specific dates and a Detour Map for recommended alternative routes.

Now Open

  • The portion of Ellerbee Creek Trail between W. Murray Avenue and Stadium Drive is now open.

Please note, once a portion of the trail is closed for repair, the site is considered an active construction zone and must be avoided due to the dangerous conditions. Interruptions, such as foot traffic and use of the trail, during the repair process will cause delays in reopening the trail. Please be mindful of the barricades and signage, which signify a trail closure. Trail users are encouraged to discover and use other trails during that period of time.
