Portion of American Tobacco Trail closes to connect to new pedestrian tunnel

Post Date:01/05/2018 2:41 PM
  • Weather permitting, a 1,000-foot section of the American Tobacco Trail between Morrisville Parkway and New Hope Church Road will be closed January 8-12.

  • The closure will allow contractors working on behalf of the Town to realign the trail into a new pedestrian tunnel under the extension of Yates Store Road.

  • When the closure is in effect, signs will be posted at trail entrances to let citizens know of the closure.

  • The American Tobacco Trail is a 23-mile trail that stretches from the western edge of Apex through Wake, Chatham and Durham Counties on its way to downtown Durham.
