Aviation Walk Information

On December 6, 2018, the City of Hickory was awarded a $17 million Better Utilizing Investments to Leverage Development (BUILD) Transportation Discretionary Grant from the U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT).  In addition to funding a 1.2-mile complete streetscape loop in Downtown Hickory as part of the Hickory Trail, the BUILD grant will fund a pedestrian bridge over U.S. 321 and an approximately 1.7-mile bicycle and pedestrian trail that will travel by L.P. Frans Stadium, home of the Hickory Crawdads baseball team, and up to the Hickory Regional Airport.  This multiuse path will be called the Aviation Walk.
 

During a special meeting on October 9, 2019, Hickory City Council approved a contract with TGS Engineers for planning, permitting, routing, design, and estimating of the project. 
 

The Aviation Walk has construction authorization and is anticipated to go out to bid by summer 2021.
