2022-2023 Trail Repair Project

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.  Additional sections of City trails may be repaired if project funding allows, and we will keep the community updated on those details.  

For additional information about this project, visit the City of Durham Public Works page and check out the 2022-2023 Trail Repair Project Map.


  • Rock Quarry Spur Trail/Vietnam Veteran Living Memorial Trail (Rock Quarry Park to W. Murray Avenue)
  • New Hope Creek Trail (in Old Chapel Hill Road Park)
  • W. Ellerbee Creek Trail (Albany Street to Maryland Avenue)
  • Ellerbee Creek Trail (Stadium Drive to Club Boulevard)
  • S. Ellerbee Creek Trail (Club Boulevard to Trinity Avenue)
  • Rocky Creek Greenway (Dakota Street to American Tobacco Trail)

Currently Closed:

  • Warren Creek Trail (Horton Road to Stadium Drive)
  • Renaissance Parkway Side Path (NC 741 to Fayetteville Road)
  • Stadium Drive (select panels of concrete are being repaired and active construction areas should be avoided. Complete closures of the trail is not expected)

Upcoming Closures (later this fall):

  • American Tobacco Trail (Dunhill to NC 54) to be closed beginning the week of November 27.
  • Ellerbee Creek Trail (between W. Murray Ave and Lavender Ave) which was recently repaved and re-opened, has experienced damage due to nearby trees. The safest solution is to remove 2-3 contributing trees. This section of the trail will be closed this fall to allow for the tree work and for repaving the damaged asphalt.
