Burlington Greenway Construction 11/17 Update


Construction on the northern section of the Burlington greenway is entering it’s final stretch as construction season comes to an end. Crews are working as long as temperatures and weather allow.

The current operation includes asphalt paving on the stretch from North Beach to shore road. Once that is completed some greenway should work will be completed by early December before winter brings work to a close for good.

Guest should be aware that construction is still underway on the Phase 2b section from North Beach to Shore Road. Please follow the signs posted and avoid the construction area.Work in the stone culvert to the south of Little Eagle Bay will begin immediately. The contractor will be removing approximately 140 cubic yards of silt that’s clogging it up.

Phase 2b includes some of the most difficult parts of construction. workers are replacing sub-base, improving stormwater systems. Once completed, this section will traverse some of the wildest and most scenic landscapes found along the Burlington section of the path.

During construction, Leddy Park will see some construction vehicles in its parking lot. Additionally, most of the project staging will be located at Starr Farm.

Crews will soon work to improve Greenway intersections within the construction area, as well as, significant storm water infrastructure and repair of drainage courses and culverts.

Burlington Parks and Recreation will post updates on their website. Park Burlington will continue to provide information related to parking and transportation impacts resulting from this project.
