Greenways are nothing new for Charlotte. These pedestrian and bicycle paths are scattered throughout the county, but most sections are only a few miles long. That’s about to change. A project is in the works to link some of these paved paths and create one continuous greenway from Pineville northeast to the Cabarrus County line. The effort isn’t just about recreation, but also economic development.
