9.1.6 Railroad Walkway

This nondescript path leads from Main Street and Front Street across the railroad tracks directly into the heart of downtown. In its current condition, it looks like a road to nowhere. Potential, low cost enhancements include public art, lighting, and signage to create a unique approach into downtown for pedestrians.

S S Existing path leading to downtown from Front Street that crosses the railroad tracks

RECOMMENDATION 9E: Transform the pedestrian pathway across the rail line into an art walk to downtown Wake Forest.

S S Proposed improvements to the walkway using landscaping, decorative paving treatment, public art, lighting, and monument signs that turn this path into an iconic gateway to downtown
