Bike-Pedestrian Projects

The Fayetteville Area Metropolitan Planning Organization is responsible for bicycle and pedestrian planning within the Fayetteville Area, including connectivity bike and ped studies, greenway and sidewalk projects, and other plans.

NCDOT Great Trails State Plan

The Great Trails State Plan is a network of multi-use trails of statewide significance connecting North Carolina's counties and urban areas with state parks and important recreational assets. The plan is led by NCDOT's Integrated Mobility Division in coordination with NCDOT's Transportation Planning Division and North Carolina State Parks. The goal of the plan is to develop a statewide trail map with an action-oriented network plan and 5-year implementation strategy. The plan is currently underway and in the drafting stages of the trail maps. To view and make comments on the draft maps click on the link below.

Cape Fear River Trail Part C Construction Complete (August 2021):

The Cape Fear River Trail Part C was completed in August, linking Part B and C of the trail together. The Cape Fear Trail now stretches 7 miles from the Jordan Soccer complex and Clark Park to the Linear Park Connection Trail, which connects to downtown Fayetteville. The new section of trail was started in June 2020 and is a boardwalk that goes under the CSX rail bridge above the Cape Fear River. The project estimated $2.47 million and has impressive views of the Cape Fear River. 

Sandhills Regional Bike Plan (2019):

The Sandhills Regional Bike Plan is a FAMPO led Bike Plan for the Sandhills Region, that includes 51 municipalities, seven counties, and three divisions of NCDOT (Divisions 3, 6, and 8). Along with FAMPO, the study area includes parts of the Capital Area MPO (CAMPO), the Mid-Carolina Rural Planning Organization (RPO), and the Lumber River RPO. The purpose of the plan is to identify opportunities and constraints for bicycling in the Sandhills region and to establish recommendations for improvement. Key features of the plan include; an analysis of current conditions and public feedback regarding opportunities and constraints for biking and greenway trails, a comprehensive recommended greenway and bikeway network, a list of recommended top projects, and recommended strategies for greenway and bikeway policies, programs, design, and implementation.
