Thanks to all the volunteers who came out on a very windy day on April 2 to kick off the construction of Phase 1A (from Lee Street to Spring Garden Street along Freeman Mill Road). More than 60 volunteers filled 150+ bags with trash and recyclables along this quarter-mile section of the Greenway in conjunction with the Great American Clean Up and Greensboro Beautiful’s city-wide clean up. Your help and enthusiasm are greatly appreciated. Thanks for supporting your Greenway!

In a series of public meetings held on January 25, 2011, sculptor Jim Gallucci and lighting designer Scott Richardson presented concepts for their vision of transforming an abandoned railroad underpass sited on the Downtown Greenway between West Lee Street and Spring Garden Road into a public art space. The concept is exciting, and we can't wait to see it completed!
