Greenway Sections Remain Closed
We're hoping for an update next week, but for now, two sections of our popular Clayton River Walk on the Neuse & Sam's Branch greenways remain closed for repairs. Having greenways along the river make for scenic trails, but the proximity to water brings challenges. Hurricane Matthew's flood waters took out a bridge and delayed repairs at a utility station along the river. Check the map for how you can get around these closures.
