This project would provide for future greenway development, including construction of the Waughtown Connector Greenway. Bond proceeds would enable the City to expedite construction by completely funding special design work with local dollars, thus not requiring the extensive review by the State if the projects are funded from State grants. Staff would coordinate with the Transportation Advisory Committee (TAC) and Bicycle and Greenway Planning Sub-Committee to make recommendations and identify state and federal matching funds.

The Waughtown Connector Greenway would connect the Waughtown Street area and surrounding neighborhoods to the Peachtree Greenway, Reynolds Park, and the William R. Anderson Jr. Recreation Center. The Peachtree Greenway connects to the Salem Creek Greenway providing access to:

  • Downtown via the Strollway
  • Gateway YWCA
  • Peters Creek Parkway
  • Salem College
  • Salem Lake Trail
  • Winston-Salem State University

The greenway also would allow for access around the quarry, providing the public with the opportunity for scenic views.
