Stewart Engineering Helps Dedicate Greenway And Pedestrian Bridge

Robert Macia, PE, LEED AP, president of Stewart Engineering (, has announced that the firm helped dedicate the Swift Creek Greenway and Pedestrian Bridge along Regency Parkway in Cary, N.C. While the project has been completed for a few months, the ribbon-cutting ceremony was held on Saturday, June 2, 2012 in conjunction with National Trails Day. The Swift Creek Greenway, a 1.03-mile trail constructed of recycled asphalt, is the nation’s first greenway built completely with recycled products. Stewart Engineering, the design consultant for this project, dedicated the greenway along with the Town of Cary’s Parks, Recreation and Cultural Resources Department.

“Stewart Engineering is honored to join the Town of Cary Parks, Recreation and Cultural Resources to celebrate National Trails Day and dedicate the Swift Creek Greenway and Pedestrian Bridge,” said Iona Thomas, associate vice president and greenway design group manager. “It was wonderful to have everyone who had a hand in the project come together to celebrate the opening of a trail that will serve as a great addition to the Cary community.”

– This section of the Swift Creek Greenway includes a pedestrian bridge over the Swift Creek and creates a connection to Regency Park and the Koko Booth Amphitheater.

– The trailhead and parking for the greenway is located at Ritter Park.

– The Swift Creek Greenway and Pedestrian Bridge is now open to the public and is family and pet-friendly.
