2022-2023 Trail Repair Closures

Repaving of the existing asphalt on various trails throughout Durham began Spring 2022. The trails are being repaved to fix cracking, potholes, and minor drainage issues and add a center dashed line. While under construction, portions of the trails will be closed until complete. Construction is expected to be completed Spring 2023. For additional information about this project, visit the City of Durham Public Works page and check out the 2022-2023 Trail Repair Project Map.

  • The portion of Ellerbee Creek Trail between Stadium Drive and Lavender Avenue is now open. 
  • The portion of Ellerbee Creek Trail between Lavender Avenue and Club Blvd is now open.

Please note, once a portion of the trail is closed for repair, the site is considered an active construction zone and must be avoided due to the dangerous conditions. Interruptions, such as foot traffic and use of the trail, during the repair process will cause delays in reopening the trail. Please be mindful of the barricades and signage, which signify a trail closure. Trail users are encouraged to discover and use other trails during that period of time.
