The combination of road diets and greenway will help reduce bicycle and pedestrian incidents. The project’s greenway is intended to prevent pollutants from entering the creek and contaminating a water source used for drinking. Street trees and the greenway are also expected to have a cooling effect on the surrounding area, reducing the urban heat island effect. The use of emissions-free transportation is also expected to improve air quality in the area. The. project will connect low-income and historically marginalized neighborhoods to commercial districts in southwest and downtown High Point, NC.
The project will construct approximately 3.5 miles of shared use greenway, approximately 1.2 miles of Complete Streets, and two blocks of bicycle boulevard in High Point, North Carolina.
