Trail Tunnel Construction Under Fulbright Expressway Begins

Improvements to the trail tunnel under the Fulbright Expressway have finally been approved and are set to begin next week.

  • Part of the Razorback Greenway, the lighted tunnel was originally designed to manage stream flow of Scull Creek, but was converted for trail traffic in 2008. Today, the tunnel is consistently wet and unsafe for pedestrians.
  • Matt Mihalevich, the city’s trails coordinator, said staff have designed a sloped concrete floor through the culvert to create a more dry and safer experience when walking, jogging or riding through the tunnel. -Fayetteville Flyer
  • Trail frequents should expect periodic closures during construction hours.
    Detour signs will route trail users around the tunnel along Swallow Circle and Gregg Avenue.
