We are pleased to share with you that we began construction on the Epping Way segment of the Wolf River Greenway, located in Raleigh, on August 1, 2016. The construction is being completed by Memphis-based A & B Construction Company. Currently, we expect this segment of about one mile to be completed by the end of this year.
In addition to the Epping Way segment, we have now advertised and are accepting construction bids for the Mud Island to Second Street segment. We anticipate construction to begin around October 1, 2016. Construction bids for the John F. Kennedy Park segment will be solicited later this year.
It is indeed exciting to see our vision of the Wolf River Greenway trail now becoming a reality as these new segments are built! You can visit the Wolf River Greenway pages on our website for the latest information.
We are very grateful for the private and public financial support for this project as we continue to partner with the City of Memphis Parks and Neighborhood Division.
We can only deliver on the Wolf River Greenway project and our other important endeavors - environmental education, recreation and land conservation - with the support of the community. Please show your support for our mission by visiting www.wolfriver.org/give. As always, thank you!
