About the Project
The project includes preparation of a feasibility study of greenway alternatives for portions of the Bent Creek Corridor.
The limits of the Bent Creek Corridor analyzed in this project spans from Asheville Outlets south of the intersection of Brevard Road/NC 191 and I-26 (exit 33) north to the WNC Farmer's Market and I-240 (near exit 1B) crossing I-40 at exit 47) then continuing into the existing Hominy Creek Greenway.
The study determined the feasibility of a greenway within the stated study area. The feasibility study progressed the plan for a greenway in this area from its current long-range status (e.g., need, vision, and destination) to a level where potential engineering issues can be determined.
The study considered alternative alignments and identified a preferred alignment for the horizontal placement of the greenway along the full length of the study area. The general alignment alternatives were based on publicly available information from the Buncombe County Greenways and Trails Master Plan. Formal construction drawings are not included with this scope of work. The typical cross sections will be based on descriptions included in the Master Plan, for example typical sections may include a 12' or 10' Asphalt path, and 3-8' walking trails.
