West Ellerbe Creek Trail
West Ellerbe Creek Trail is a bicycle/pedestrian trail in Durham, NC that currently runs from Indian Trail Park (off Albany Street near the eastern edge of Hillandale Golf Course) east-northeast along the western portion of Ellerbe Creek to intersect with Stadium Drive Trail.
A highlight of the trail is the tunnel under I-85 between Guess Road and the North Pointe Shopping Mall. Although the tunnel itself was build in the twenty-aughts, the trail did not open until 2018. Here's what happened:

- 2014-02-11 Durham greenway could be condemnation bound: "...the owners of the Bed, Bath and Beyond shopping center and Costco land already donated easements, back in the 1990s. The catch is, since then the creek has meandered to a new course and the old easements are now in buffer zones where new water-quality rules prohibit any construction."
