WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) - The Wilmington City Council unanimously approved an $828,355 construction contract to Morgan Trucking and General Construction for section 1 of the Greenville Loop Trail.

The 1-mile multi-use path will be 8 to 10 feet wide and run beside Holly Tree Road from S College Road to Pine Grove Drive.

Designs for sections 2 and 3 of the trail are 90% complete, which comprises the trail section along Greenville Loop Road to the River to Sea Bikeway at Park Ave. Bidding and construction for these are expected to start in mid-2023. The final section along Pine Grove Drive between Holly Tree Road and Greenville Loop Road is set to begin construction with intersection improvements in late 2023.

The Shallotte-based company was the lowest responsive and responsible bidder, according to the agenda item. This is a transportation bond project, and money isn’t being taken out of another fund to pay for it.

You can see the full agenda of the item on the city website.
