The 1.3 mile section of the Gary Shell Cross-City Trail from Wade Park on Bethel Road to South 17th Street, where the trail currently ends at John D. Barry Drive, is scheduled for completion in winter 2015, according to Ron Satterfield, assistant planning director for the city of Wilmington.

In addition to building the Cross-City Trail, construction includes new stormwater improvements and street resurfacing.

The project has experienced significant delays due to unanticipated utility conflicts. The neighborhood along Bethel and Waltmoor roads was originally served by a private utility company.

Information the city has regarding the location of existing lines has proven to contain some inaccuracies. That has led to repeated instances of workers hitting water and sewer lines. When this happens, work is interrupted until repairs can be made and the plans revised to address the conflict.
