The County and Tourism Development Authority are currently working with NCDOT, Fish and Wildlife Resources, and Duke Energy to complete the two accesses where the Broad River intersects with Highway 221 and 221A. Funding has now been secured to implement both of these projects, and engineering is underway. Construction is expected for both access in Q2 of 2021. Work has already begun to secure additional accesses identified along the Broad River Paddle Trail.
Donations of all sizes are welcome and can help support the funding of elements such as the kayak launch, signage, and landscaping.
