Closing the Gap

City of Fayetteville

Last week, Fayetteville City Council members accepted a generous grant from the Walton Family Foundation to connect the paved trail from Mission to the Razorback Greenway.

  • $385,000: The amount that was provided by the Foundation with an aim to improve the "on-street bike corridor along Prospect Street, Park Avenue, Trenton Boulevard and Rebecca Street."
  • The connection is expected to be finished in 2023. Upon completion, it will connect a 12-mile loop with more than 12,000 people living within one mile (or a 6-minute bike ride) of the central point of the route.

This will be a huge improvement, because biking on Mission to get to the Greenway currently is not for the faint of heart. You can read more about the project HERE.
