The City of Mobile has received the Notice of Award for RESTORE funding from the US Department of Treasury to move forward with design and construction on the next phases of the Three Mile Creek Greenway Trail.  The long-awaited Notice of Award allows the Program and Project Management Department to proceed with steps necessary for construction on the next segment and begin construction drawings for two additional phases that will extend the current trail to a total length of approximately three miles.

The next construction phase will extend the existing trail west, to the University of South Alabama Medical Center. It is expected to be complete by the end of 2021. Two segments will follow, one continuing west, crossing the creek and connecting to Mill Street Park and Bush Park. The other segment will extend the trail east to MLK Jr Boulevard.

  • The Three Mile Creek Greenway Trail is a community amenity that provides access to one of Mobile’s most beautiful natural assets.
  • The City has organized an implementation plan, secured funding from multiple sources, and is undertaking design and construction of the greenway trail in multiple phases.
  • When complete, Three Mile Creek Greenway Trail will be within 1-mile of 70,000 residents and have city-wide benefits related to the local economy, personal health, and the environment.
  • This RESTORE Act funding will allow for the construction of three segments of the greenway.

The City has created a webpage where you can explore an interactive map of the existing and future trail, learn about the greenway vision, see project updates, and provide feedback.

This project was paid for [in part] with federal funding from the Department of the Treasury under the Resources and Ecosystems Sustainability, Tourist Opportunities, and Revived Economies of the Gulf Coast States Act of 2012 (RESTORE Act).
