The Town of Matthews is seeking public input on the Sam Newell Road multi-use path.

The Sam Newell Road multi-use path project proposes to construct a 10-foot wide multi-use path along the west side of Sam Newell Road from Williams Road to Crown Point Elementary School. The purpose of this project is to provide a comfortable and safe pedestrian and bicyclist facility that will connect the community to area businesses, the proposed Irvins Creek Greenway, and Crown Point Elementary School.

A multi-use path is similar to a wide sidewalk in that it is physically separated from motor vehicle traffic, however it is intended to be used by bicyclists and pedestrians. Multi-use paths are wide enough to accommodate users traveling in either direction and allow for passing. Pedestrian crossing improvements are also proposed at the Williams Road, Chanson Place, and Lakeview Circle. These improvements include repairing the existing curb and gutter, installing curb ramps, and high-visibility crosswalk markings. The project will connect to the Irvins Creek Greenway which is currently under design by Mecklenburg County.
