The Town of Matthews seeks bids from qualified, experienced trail builders to design and construct a combined natural / paved surface trail, creating the described Heritage Trail. Maps and descriptions of the proposed alignment and trail area are available for download.
The Heritage Trail project extends approximately 7,000’ in length, connecting Matthews Town Hall, the historic Crestdale Community and Four Mile Creek Greenway in Matthews. Approximately 3500’ of existing sidewalk and roadway will be incorporated along with approximately 3500’ of constructed trail surfacing. Ideal trail width will be 12’ in most areas (10’ trail, 1’ shoulder on each side). Site constraints will reduce the width in some areas. Minor grading is needed for the entire length of constructed trail. Selective tree and vegetation removal is needed in identified areas. In effort to preserve trees, some sections of trail construction may include a design-build element to install the trail in heavily wooded areas.
