In preparation for clearing the site of the future Stowe Headworks and Influent Pump Station and the Northern Access Road, the Needle Trail and Carolina Thread Trail had to be closed off Belmeade Road. Earlier this year, the southern portion of the Carolina Thread Trail and the Tortuga Trail were closed for construction.
These trail closures protect public safety during construction. We are working with the Carolina Lands Conservancy and U.S. National Whitewater Center to offset the closure of these trails.
The future Northern Access Road will establish a permanent driveway off Belmeade Road for Charlotte Water’s Long Creek Pump Station.
